  1. Strata apartment insulation audit

    I am interested to test the thermal efficiency of the envelope/skin of my 36 year old apartment. I attended the Toward a 2000 Watt Society with Victoria Hart, Andreas Lizzi, Martine Blum and Roland Schulz and MC'd by Chris Ryan. I was interested to understand from Andreas Lizzi that even new 6 star energy efficient apartments can be like 'Swiss cheese' and so I hopped onto the Smartblocks site to see if there is a way to test/improve the passive efficiency of my block but I could not see this....is there a way to conduct such a test? I would…

      • Revise the entry under 2. EXTRAORDINARY GENERAL MEETINGS - Written support from other owners

        The statement "To hold an EGM in Western Australia more than 25 per cent of all owners must request an EGM in writing. The notice period is 14 days." is not completely correct.

        Schedule 1 of the WA Strata Titles Act 1985 at by-law 11(3) states:

        The council may when ever it thinks fit and shall upon a requisition in writing made by proprietors entitled to a quarter or more of the aggregate unit entitlement of the lots convene an extraordinary general meeting.

        This means:

        1. The council may convene meetings whenever it thinks fit; and,

        2. must convene a…

          • Ensure Owners Committees are not stacked with self interested members. Have a responsibility clause re maintenance and sustainability

            Owners Corporations as ours are stacked with non progressive members. The proposal of OC members are not distributed. The Committees need to have a responsibility clause re carrying out essential preventative maintenance and sustainability inserted in duties of OC Committee members.
            There needs also to be a limit on years of membership of members and the prevention of stacking by parts of building and non resident owners ( landlords)

                    Our block has a high ratio of tenant to owner occupiers. Subsequently most people use the washing machines near empty and mostly use dryers instead of the clothes line as they arn't paying financially. Need suggestions.

                                At the moment we have one spot to add energy billing information. Apparently some buildings have multiple addresses and also multiple meters coming into the building even though they are managed by one committee. People have indicated at the workshops that it would be great if there were multiple meters that they could enter, that this would help them manage usage.

                                    It is important to remember that if you need to call an EGM to consider the project, this will cost the owners corporation. Should you advise of this earlier in the process - in step 4 - so it can be included in the business case?
