Your Body Corporate Adelaide Needs Fully Covered

At Strata Data, we prioritise people over profit and are continuously looking for ways to improve our body corporate services. Over the years, we’ve found that the best way to provide top-quality body corporate management Adelaide residents can trust is to focus on three key areas: listening, learning, and guiding with tailored options.

We understand that it can sometimes be difficult in body corporate groups if owners hold conflicting views. However, we believe in honest, respectful, and open discussions so that everyone will feel as though they’ve had the chance to give their opinion before an agreement is made. Managing a body corporate requires effective problem-solving and negotiation skills; something that is our speciality. At the end of the day, it is our goal to achieve a positive outcome for every Adelaide property owner involved within the body corporate.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Body Corporate Management?

The process of subdivision of property for development makes it necessary for a managing body to exist in order to deal with common ownership issues and topics of concern for the community. Body corporates are regulated by legislation.

Body corporate managers are appointed by the owners of an apartment block/land to manage that block on behalf of all owners. Body corporate managers work for the collective interest of all owners and provide advice and guidance for legal and financial matters and mediate a discussion between owners.

Can the Body Corporate Evict a Tenant?

No, body corporate Adelaide groups cannot evict a tenant. Body corporates cannot interfere with people’s individual right to own and live in property.

If members of the body corporate are having issues with one particular resident, they can bring it up at meetings, or inform your body corporate manager and discuss the best ways forward but do not have powers to evict.

Can I Extend or Develop My Property?

It depends on a number of factors; however, there is no overarching rule against it in body corporate.

Keep in mind, a planned extension must remain inside your allotted piece of land. Plans need to be approved by members of the corporation and the relevant council; they cannot be approved by your manager or the committee itself.

What Do I Do If I’m Having Problems at My Corporation?

The first thing you should do is call your body corporate management company. They have the best understanding of your rights and the relevant legislation. They will also be able to act as a mediator in any discussions regarding your issue.

Is There a Difference Between Strata and Body Corporate?

The legislation governing this area was changed in 1996. Thus, buildings built under the old Strata Titles Act are ‘Strata’, whereas building built after 1996 under the new Community Titles Act are called ‘Community’. The term ‘Body Corporate’ encompasses both strata and community.

Even though the terminology changed in 1996, people tend to stick with the old terminology. Thus you will notice that most companies, like us, offering management services in this area have the word ‘strata’ in their name.

Commonly, the terms ‘strata management’, ‘community management’ and ‘body corporate management’ are used interchangeably.

What If We Want to Add Committee Members?

In general, owners add committee members through a resolution-based decision at their annual general meeting. If a vacancy arises, the management committee may appoint a suitable person to fill the role.

Why Do I Have to Pay Quarterly Contributions?

As you all own parts of the building and common areas, your quarterly contributions contribute to the maintenance, management and running of these areas. These funds pay for things like insurance, landscaping, cleaning, and electricity for shared spaces and more.

What are Body Corporate By-Laws?

By-laws are a set of rules that are put in place to ensure all occupants can peacefully and sensibly enjoy the common areas and facilities together. These by-laws and the proper enforcement of these by-laws are crucial to preserving property values within the community.

A by-law cannot discriminate between different types of occupiers and cannot restrict the type of residential use of a lot so long as it is lawful.

‘By-laws’ is the term used for newer community titled properties. For properties developed prior to 1996 and under the older Strata Titles Act, the term ‘Articles’ is used.  They are essentially the same thing.
