    Our Chairman and the Committee (most) ignore complaints.  In response to any complaint  from an owner the response is  “issue legal proceedings in VCAT if you think you have a case”.   The OC Committee  members  are insured, the owner risks $120k in costs at VCAT.  I even engaged a top Melbourne law firm to issue a letter of demand and the OC Committee chose to  simply ignore it.  The Chairman and the OC (majority not all)  refuse to discuss  the essence of our complaints.   The Chairman and his helpers  either   don’t know the legislation or   think it is at best, a mere suggestion.   To the best of my knowledge the OC Committee members  don’t  have a copy of the Act or the Regs and  refuse legal OC training.  This is a new billion dollar apartment being run by a handful of narcissists.

    There should be  new system of where there are more than X number of owners requiring an OC, then it is entirely managed by  a fully independent agency.  Something akin the the Public Trustee but for OC’s.

    I think it would be very helpful if you told us what the “essence of our complaints” actually is.

    and refuse legal OC training

    What “legal training” are you referring to?

    According to this Fact Sheet there are is no cost that would even approach $120k.  How do you reach that figure?

    Don’t waste your money on legal letters from high-priced lawyers.  Follow the links on the fact sheet to get advice specific to strata schemes
