NOTICE DISTRIBUTION FOR GENERAL MEETINGS
Section 76 of the Interpretation Act 1987 sets out the timeframe within which a document sent by post will be deemed served. However, as of 28 November 2018, this has been increased from the previously required 4 business days to service within Australia “to have been effected on the seventh working day after the letter was posted”.
In addition, the Strata Act requires that there be 7 ‘clear days’ notice to be provided. The table below is intended to provide guidance on the worst case scenario, for the latest a meeting agenda can be posted out to ensure a valid meeting is held.
Note – This does not take into account any public holidays that will affect the required.
About Strata Life – Strata Management Services
At Strata Life we strive to take the pressure of the day to day running of a strata scheme off of the shoulders of the committee members and owners. Whilst the nature of strata itself does mean that the owners/ committee are responsible for the decisions, the pressure is reduced by having a proactive manager provide guidance with a plain sense approach and quickly actioning issues as they arise.
We appreciate Committee members often have full time jobs and busy lives. Add to this that the strata scheme is often your home where Committee members do not want to have to police other residents.
Our aim is to minimise the work and time where we can, take on the role of reminding owners and residents of the by-laws so that everyone can peacefully enjoy community living.
Our team has extensive experience with properties on the Upper North Shore, Hornsby and the Northern Beaches areas, with excellent local contractors and superior local knowledge.
