Top 3 Takeaways From "New Qld Tenancy Laws: The Impact on Strata - Part 2"
Know Who the Occupiers Are
Any lease more than six months should have details recorded on the body corporate roll, including details of the occupier (tenant) and the agent as well.
Stay Properly Informed
Tenancy law changes are open to being politicised because the different interests are very strongly held – like in strata. Rely upon the appropriate information and advice from agencies such as RTA and BCCM, or seek legal advice.
There are going to be lots of instances in the coming years where the interactions between occupiers, owners, the body corporate, caretakers and managers will be vital in ensuring things get done in the strata scheme and obligations under both strata and tenancy legislation are met. Take the opportunity to therefore get involved, to protect your interests, whether it be on the committee, in some other volunteer capacity or by simply taking the time to read meeting papers and minutes.
