Important Changes For Body Corporate<< Back to Blog
Friday 1 July 2011 marked the official start date of the name change from “Community Titles Institute of Qld” to “Strata Community Australia (QLD)” along with all other states in Australia. All the states became a part of the new National institute “SCA”. This is very exciting time in the industry and has been the culmination of 4 years of very hard work which included the hard work of our very own Body Corporate Manager, Cathy Blanchard.
Cathy attended the Strata Community Australia (SCA) national leadership forum and inaugural SCA Council meeting in early July in Canberra. This was the official launch for SCA where important government officials for our industry along with our industry directors which includes Cathy were all invited.
Cathy commented on the reasons behind the name change “The establishment of the National organisation will give us a united front when it comes to lobbying government on issues which affect our owners as well as our industry. To date the Body Corporate industry has been taken as part of the Real estate industry and when you look at the people we are dealing with it is really very very different. Body Corporate needed a voice in government and this unification process will be the start of that voice being heard” Cathy said.
There are many issues in parliament at the moment including the “Lot Entitlement” issue and the establishment of the new “Duplex” module. If you would like more information on what is happening in the industry and how it can affect you as a unit owner then please contact Cathy in our Body Corporate office on 07 5448 8725.
Cathy is always happy to talk to you about the Administration of your Body Corporate and is available for advise on any matters you may have whether you are a client of North Shore Body Corporate or not. Please give us a call and let us help you understand your building better.
