Can my husband who holds sole power of attorney attend council of owner meeting in my place for a property that is my name only? – Susan, NSW
A: Some Clarification on the “Council of Owners” is needed before we can answer this correctly, however, it has been assumed that the Question refers to a power of attorney vote at a committee meeting on behalf of a member of the Strata Committee.
The Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 states:
A member of a strata committee may, with the consent of the strata committee, appoint an owner or company nominee of a corporation that is an owner who is eligible to be a member to act in his or her place as a member at any meeting of the strata committee.
