Electric Vehicles in Strata

The consumer move towards electric vehicles is well underway, and that means some possible challenges for people owning, renting or managing properties in strata schemes. This webinar led by Frank Higginson and Chris Irons gives insight into the challenges that older schemes face with EVs, how many EV stations might be needed on a strata property, the potential electricity infrastructure impact, and more.


Top 3 Takeaways from the Electric Vehicles in Strata Webinar:


Property Values

Appropriate EV facilities at a body corporate can significantly add to property values, offsetting infrastructure costs or reservations about having to undertake the time and effort to do works to make it happen. 

Balance Ideology vs Practicality 

Some people are cult-like with EV. Others are almost the opposite in opposition. Both are fine and neither are wrong. It’s a matter of balance though and from a body corporate perspective, decision-making which takes into account the interests of all. 

Follow Methodical Processes 

Tempting as it may be to cut corners to expedite an outcome, or if under pressure to make quick decisions by eager EV owners or users, be sure to follow set processes for calling, holding and conducting body corporate meetings.
