Delivering Bad News on What is and is Not Common Property

Every strata community should have a one page cheat sheet that can be used to easily communicate to all and sundry the ‘what’s in’ and ‘what’s not’ of common property.

If the committee is refusing to take on an owner’s problem because it doesn’t relate to common property, then bad news delivered early, unequivocally and with a valid reason that is properly explained, makes for better friends in the long run. In delivering this bad news, it helps to be able to point to a document that has been used for some time to determine these matters. We take bad news better if we know others have been treated the same.
