Q: I am an owner in a strata block of 6. At the recent AGM 4 of the owners voted to limit the number of SC members to 3. One consequence has been that those not on the SC have had their access to information on the Strata Managers hub deleted. Information previously available , at the click of a button, includes invoice payments, financial reports, levy due or not paid. I feel as an owner I should have access to that type of information at any time , it seems in this case only SC members have that access. Is this correct & if so what can none SC owners do?

In a strata scheme, accounting records and information are usually only accessible to the strata committee. This is done to keep sensitive financial and personal information private and secure and to help the committee make informed decisions for the owners corporation.
If access to these records was unrestricted, it could put the privacy and security of individual owners and the strata scheme at risk.
Owners can arrange and pay a fee for a strata search, allowing them to access the scheme’s financial and personal data confidential and securely.
You could also look to be voted onto the committee at the next AGM.
