our process

How to change Owners Corporations Management companies

Check Your Current Strata Management Agreement

If you haven’t already got a copy of your Owners Corporations Management contract, you will need to obtain one. Ask your current strata manager for a copy of this agreement. Check the exit details of this contract to see what notice period must be followed to leave the agreement and if there are any special considerations.

Due Diligence – Seek alternative quotes from other Owners Corporations Management Companies

Obtain quotes online from several strata management companies. Make sure that all quotes are sent through to you via email so that you can review the contract terms. Compile a list of functions and prices that each company provides and compare with your current manager. Once you’ve done this review, list and choose your preferred strata manager.

Make sure to check that all strata management companies that you ask to quote are members of Strata Community Association (SCA), the leading industry body for professional strata managers.

Contact your newly nominated manager and advise them that you intend to transfer to their management. The new manager can then assist you with the formalities of exiting the current contract.

Provide your current strata manager with their formal termination notice as per the terms of the agreement

If you do not give notice to terminate the Contract of Appointment in sufficient time, your Contract of Appointment may automatically roll over for a further 12 months at the expiry date. Make sure that the termination notice falls within the guidelines of your relevant state legislation or Act.

Whichever comes first a Committee Meeting, Special General Meeting or the Annual General Meeting, ask for the required motions to be included in the meeting agenda

Owners may submit a motion to be included on the agenda at the next general meeting after the notice to terminate the current Manager has been received. For the motion to be passed, a majority of those present at the general meeting need to vote in favour and pass the ordinary resolution.

Advise your new Strata Manager of their appointment

The committee will need to provide your new Manager with the information of your existing Manager, from there your new Manager can organise the final handover and transfer of documents. Generally, your newly appointed Manager will handle the rest.

All of the above should be considered in conjunction with the relevant legislation.

Australian Body Corporate is happy to answer any additional questions you may have or provide you with a no obligation free quote which may help you make an informed decision.

recent testimonial

Since changing to Australian Body Corporate in 2018 the team have provided guidance and advice to the committee on numerous complex issues such as cladding. Based on the excellent working relationship I have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Mr. Mars Committee Member

In December 2021 the Committee were tasked with finding a new Owners Corporation Management Company, after an extensive search and shortlisting process we made the move to ABC. We have seen a vast improvement in our large building in areas as cost savings and services provided.

Mr. Turnham Chairperson

Aus Body Corporate have been managing our block of units for a number of years, We have found them to be very responsive and to communicate well over any issues or items requiring attention, Rowena has been very attentive and quick to respond to any queries, She has provided excellent advice around best course of action in numerous different situations and is well versed in the responsibilities of a body corp. Would recommend highly.

Mr Walsh

We appointed Australian Body Corporate approximately 18 months ago. I am particularly satisfied with the service provided by the team; they are always prompt and professional when responding to requests. They arranged garden maintenance for the development which I must say is being performed by a contractor that has carried out the work in a manner that exceeded my expectations.

Mr Collinson

Massive thank you to the team at Australian Body Corporate. They are managing a lot of body corporates that we’ve been involved with. They are such a pleasure to work with and we have nothing but positive things to say.

From the team at Ray White Preston
