3.2 Appointing a new strata manager

The appointment and giving of powers to a strata manager can only be decided by a majority vote at a general meeting. Only a person who holds a strata manager licence under the Act can be appointed. The length of the appointment should be negotiated by the parties but cannot exceed 3 years. Owners corporations should make themselves aware of the terms of any agency agreement they enter into.

Both the instrument in writing and the appointment are to be authorised at ageneral meeting. A decision needs to be made whether to send the whole contract to every owner. The alternative is to provide a copy that can be examined by owners prior to the meeting at which the resolution is passed.
