    Hi

    Because of the allotments our strata committee needs my vote to pass a special levy.  If I can’t make it to a special meeting can they vote levies through without my consent?

    Hi Jimmy-T
    Thanks for your excellent advice.
    The special levy was voted in and is payable by the new owners according to our contract of sale.
    In my other post I asked about the timing for payment of the special levy. Is this normally done at settlement? Are there any rules governing this?
    Thanks

    First of all, the committee can’t pass levies, special or otherwise.  This can only be done by a general meeting.

    If you are talking about an extraordinary general meeting when you refer to a “special meeting” then if you want to support the special levy, send a proxy vote.  If you don’t want to approve the special levy, send a proxy vote to that effect.  It is important to vote as the results are determined as a percentage of votes cast.

    For instance, say you have 11 owners and five vote yes and six vote no, then the “nays” win.  But if five vote yes and four vote no and two don’t turn up or send proxies, then the “yeas” win.

    Also, I notice you have posted elsewhere saying you have sold the unit and the purchasers have agreed to pay the special levy.  I can’t see why you wouldn’t arrange a proxy vote (which has to be made on the official form – or one provided by the strata manager).
