Due to the poor service, communication, and expertise provided by previous strata companies, a body corporate committee I was part of participated in an exhaustive selection process to source a new strata management company that could provide us with accurate, timely advice and direction, as well as being responsive to our requests.

The only company that ticked all these boxes was Capital Strata. The transition was seamless as they handled all the required processes for disengaging with our previous managers, including handing over all the paperwork, financials, files etc.

After more than 5 years with Capital Strata they have more than fulfilled the promises they made when we initially engaged them. From the mundane processes to the legally challenging (e.g. resolution of building defects, legal disputes etc.), they have provided sound advice ensuring that we as a committee have provided the absolute best outcomes for all owners. They have an extensive list of experts in all required fields (e.g. legal, tradespersons, engineers etc.) that they trust and can call on at short notice, ensuring that any outsourced contractor is of the highest quality. I have been so impressed that I proposed they take over my other property’s strata management service, and this committee is also very impressed with their service so far.

I cannot recommend Mark and Maria highly enough and am very grateful that we have them as our Strata Managers. This kind of service and expertise is almost impossible to find elsewhere.

Switching managers is easy.

You are probably having problems working out how to terminate the services of your current strata, body corporate or community title manager, let alone selecting a new one.

We will provide you with obligation free advice on how to terminate the services of your current strata, body corporate or community title manager.

If you select us as your new manager, we take care of the entire transition process from your previous strata, body corporate or community title manager. There are no fees until you appoint us.

What if my current manager says we have not given sufficient notice to change managers?

Some managers in the ACT have a management agreement with owners corporations that automatically renews for a 12 month period on the anniversary of when the agreement commenced, unless the manager receives written notice at least 3 months before the renewal date, that the owners corporation wants to end the agreement.

Do not let your manager browbeat you with such an agreement. Section 51(1) of the Unit Titles (Management) Act 2011 states a manager cannot be appointed for longer than three years. The three years includes all terms of extension and renewal.
If you want to change managers and your current agreement has operated for more than three years, talk to us.
