Living in a strata community offers unique advantages – shared amenities, close-knit living, and a sense of belonging. But behind the scenes, a dedicated team works tirelessly to ensure the smooth operation and well-being of these vibrant communities. This team is led by the body corporate manager, a professional whose expertise plays a crucial role in making life in your strata complex harmonious and hassle-free.

Who are Body Corporate Managers?

Body corporate managers, like those at Sunstate Strata in  Marcoola, Queensland, are qualified professionals and are members of Strata Community Australia (SCA). They act as the executive arm of the body corporate, the legal entity responsible for managing the common property within a strata complex.

What Do They Do?

The responsibilities of a body corporate manager are vast and varied, encompassing everything from the mundane to the critical. Here’s a glimpse into their diverse workload:

• Administrative Duties:

◦ Maintaining accurate records of owners, units, and levies.
◦ Arranging and attending body corporate meetings, ensuring proper procedure and communication.
◦ Handling all financial matters, including collecting levies, managing budgets, and preparing financial reports.
◦ Communicating effectively with residents, addressing concerns, and enforcing by-laws.

• Dispute Resolution:

◦ Acting as a mediator in resolving disputes between residents.
◦ Enforcing by-laws and taking appropriate action when breaches occur.
◦ Maintaining a fair and impartial approach to conflict resolution.

• Legal and Insurance Matters:

◦ Liaising with lawyers and insurance companies on behalf of the body corporate.
◦ Ensuring the body corporate has adequate insurance coverage.
◦ Keeping abreast of relevant legislation and legal requirements.

Choosing the Right Body Corporate Manager

With such immense responsibility entrusted to them, choosing the right body corporate manager is crucial. Look for:

• Qualifications and experience: Ensure your manager is a member of the Strata Community Australia and has a proven track record in managing strata communities.
