Q: I am not getting much help from our strata manager. I am putting in a new kitchen. I have informed strata, sent plans, have answered detailed questions, my reply is it will be on the AGM agenda. Apparently, not many people attend. Does the majority rule on the day? What if only 2 lot owners attend, etc? I have only been here a month the previous person caused a lot of problems therefore no one attends meetings my strata manager will only send brief emails. Doesn’t like to talk on the phone.
For AGMs does the majority rule on the day? What if only 2 lot owners attend, etc? – Maureen, NSW
A: For AGMs, as long as the number of attendees meets the quorum requirements it is okay to proceed and ensures that meeting decisions and votes made are valid.
It may be worth communicating directly with your strata committee members if your strata manager is proving unhelpful. Try your secretary or chairman, as well as some neighbours that may be able to help you by attending the AGM to reach quorum.
You may also request with your strata committee’s secretary to hold a general meeting if the AGM is missed or keeps getting postponed due to low attendance.
