Building Profiles: Owner Occupier

Next In Our Building Profile Series, We Look At Owner-Occupier Buildings.


Top 3 Takeaways for Building Profiles: Owner Occupier Schemes

Appropriate By-Laws

Body corporate legislation says by-laws cannot discriminate between different groups. So if you have a by-law which appears to favour the interests of owner-occupiers – or vice versa – it might be time to take a look at your by-laws to make sure they are fit for purpose.

Hynes offer a free assessment of your by-laws that provides with you a report, and a proposal that outlines which of your by-laws are not appropriate or invalid in any way, and what needs to be done to fix them. Use the button below to register for your free assessment. All we need is a copy of your CMS containing your existing by-laws.

Balance is Everything

There are few absolutes in strata and this applies to the interests of the people in strata. Even if owner-occupiers are the majority, it does not follow that decisions will always be made with those interests at the forefront of everything which happens.

Get The Roll Updated

If the owner-occupiers are finding it difficult communicating with minority offsite owners, or their occupiers, then it is time to ensure the body corporate roll is up to date. This in turn ensures transparent and consistent communication which will lead to a greater likelihood of things being effectively and quickly resolved.
