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
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.
