The management of Warrendine Court
Strata management is also called "body corporate management". It is a specialised area of property management involving the day-to-day operation and management of multiple units - apartment buildings, townhouse complexes, etc - and concerned with common structures, areas and facilities that are effectively jointly-owned.
This responsibility for multiple unit-owner developments requires a strata title to provide a framework for individual ownership, and guidelines to protect and govern common interests over time.
Owners within Warrendine Court automatically become members of the Body Corporate. The Body Corporate is ultimately responsibility for the maintenance and management of common areas and infrastructure, and also the administrative and financial aspects of running the property overall. The Body Corporate elects an Executive Committee to assist with administration and decision-making, and also elects to appoint a Strata Manager for qualified assistance.
The Strata Manager works with the Body Corporate and Executive Committee to control, manage, maintain and administer Warrandine Court as a jointly-owned property, ensuring that an appropriate community environment is maintained and asset values broadly protected through proper and appropriate maintenance.
The Strata Management of properties with historical, cultural and environmental significance, such as Warrendine Court, demands considerable knowledge of heritage aspects, and commitment to the preservation of originally-prescribed ideals in ethos and actuality.
Aside from this vital role in the preservation of the Warrendine Court complex for current owners and future generations, the day-to-day Strata Management of Warrendine Court includes tasks such as:

Online Strata Services
These days, most larger Strata Management companies - particular those in major cities - provide Body Corporate members with private online access to notifications, account histories, one-click payment of levies, virtualised attendance at meetings, etc. Such services are particularly helpful to investors and owner-occupiers in absentia.
While the Body Corporate is not able to enjoy online administrative facilities at the present time, this website has a password-protected section where owners can access Minutes, Agendas and Notifications, as well as review and comment on proposals and discussion topics.
Body Corporate Meetings
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is usually held in October, during the day, at a meeting room in the Orange Neighbourhood Centre, adjacent to the Woolworths carpark, in the central CBD.
While all Body Corporate members are required to participate in the AGM, in-person or by delegating their vote to a proxy representative, sometimes additional meetings are held to deal with any substantive issues or proposals arising unexpectedly.
Strata Fees & Levies
While most investors and owner-occupiers would prefer to keep maintenance costs for Warrendine Court at a minimum, day-to-day budget needs are balanced by the need to preserve and enhance the private asset values of individual townhouses through a continuing program of common-property restoration and improvement.
