Basically, it’s a “101” on The Do’s and Don’ts and Practical Tips for Strata Management… and, while this can be quite a complex topic, we have the perfect guest to explain everything you need to know… without the confusion or legal jargon getting in the way!

Today’s guest is clearly someone who knows her subject well…. Joining us is Amanda Farmer from Your Strata Property! Amanda is a specialist strata lawyer with over 16 years’ experience in strata and community living. As a Fellow and Council Member of the Australian College of Strata Lawyers, she is a recognised strata expert.

Episode 174 | Stop! Don’t sign the contract until you’ve listened to THIS! – Chat about Strata, Body Corporates & Legal Stuff with Tim Graham

Folks, it’s a SERIOUS episode today… jam-packed with nothing but serious GOLD!! (Please no contract-signing until you’ve swallowed this stuff first.)

Why? Today we’ve got Tim Graham, Partner at HWL Ebsworth Lawyers, to discuss all things Real Estate Law … especially Strata!!

Strata? What do we mean? Think Off the Plan. Subdivision. Owner Corporate (Body Corporate). Townhouse. Apartment. Unit.

 

Yep. Tim practices exclusively in the areas of strata and subdivision law, Owners Corporation and dispute resolution with almost 20 years of experience! He’s the President of the Australian College of Community Association Lawyers (ACCAL), a Fellow of the College, named in Best Lawyers™ Australia for Real Property Law and has been recognised in Doyle’s Guide as a Leading Property and Real Estate Lawyer. He is also a Council Member of Strata Communities Australia. It’s enough to make your jaw drop, especially when you think about his know-how when it comes to domestic and commercial construction law, contractual advice and building defects claims, insurance reviews, repair & maintenance and Water Act cases in the VCAT and the Courts (and then some)!

Basically, Tim’s a heavy hitter who absolutely knows his stuff (Which’s exactly what you want from someone dealing with the “the fourth form of government”).

Quick heads up, folks: You might need to put this one back to 1 speed because there is some GOLDEN but TECHNICAL tips flying around. At the end of the day though, it’s crucial you know this stuff (why spend hundreds of thousands of dollars only to throw more money at a legal dispute?!)

 

Sensible disclaimer: Folks, the gold you’re about to hear is general advice only. So, please DON’T do anything rash, make sure you seek professional advice before making any legal or property investment decision!

 

Your dot point debrief….

 

We’ve also threw in a few Case Studies for Tim to comment on as well:

  • What can you do if someone’s having loud parties on your block?
  • Who’s responsible for cleaning the outside windows?
  • Can you erect a pergola in the backyard of my townhouse?
  • The visitor carpark is always empty, can I use it?
  • What if the complex has a pool and you don’t use it … do you still have to pay?

 

Pheww! What an episode, huh??

And a quick shout out to our previous guest, Nicole Faid, for sending the legendary Tim our way! (You can suss out her episode after: How to Avoid the 7 Costly Mistakes when Buying a Property – Chat with Nicole Faid)
