All members of the body corporate wish to change the Manager. Please advise how we end the current situation and elect a new body corporate Manager? – Mel, QLD
Q: We are a small group of five with a management company. Our financial year ended September 2019. To date there has not been an AGM.
The Manager has continued to collect quarterly levies, which I believe is without authority. All members of the body corporate wish to change the Manager. At the AGM in 2018 the Manager elected a Chairman, Secretary/Treasurer without any explanation.
Please advise how we end the current situation (which appears to be illegal) and elect a new body corporate Manager?
A: If you are unhappy with your current body corporate manager and want to switch, you will have to call a motion to switch managers during either your annual general meeting (AGM), or an extraordinary general meeting (EGM).
Review your agreement first to see what the termination requirements are such as how much notice you need to give.
The motion will be voted on, and if it is passed (i.e. a majority of the votes are in favour of changing manager) you will be able to sign a new contract with a new body corporate management company.
