It doesn't matter how long you've lived in strata or whether you are a resident or a committee member, sooner or later you are going to need to ask for advice.
So where do you go? Interestingly, there is a growing number of places you can get the advice you need at low or no cost. Some are issue-specific, like BmBGuard which will tell you if there are illegal short term lets in your building, or contultants like Strata Answers and Strata-Worx.
Or you can call on the Owners Corporation Nettwork, the peak body for strata owners where membership gives you or your building access to advice and policy making at the highest level.
