In general terms, the owners corporation should manage and administer
works on the common property areas and enforce, the related Rules and
Regulations, and By-Laws.
Accordingly, it is the duty of the owners corporation to ensure the
areas and facilities it is responsible for are maintained in a
serviceable state, undertaking all relative administration tasks,
including obtaining comparative quotations for repair works and / or
improvement works as necessary.
Maintenance of facilities extends also to the common area chattels,
fixtures and fittings, ensuring attention is given to lifts, fire
escapes, and all apparatus/equipment services for which an easement
exists (eg. Service meters, such as gas, electricity, water etc.).
The insurance cover placed on the building is also the responsibility of
the owners corporation, ensuring the appropriate policy is maintained;
requiring both a review of the previous years cover and prompt payment of
the relevant premium.
