We’ll Save You Time
Strata can be appointed under a service contract to manage your Body Corporate. We’ll help manage the common property areas, and make sure you meet your obligations under the Unit Titles Act 2010. Because we’re independent we’ll be objective about the rules and regulations governing your Body Corporate. We also help each owner to have an effective voice in Body Corporate affairs. As required by your Body Corporate, we’re accountable to the Chairperson and/or the Committee.
We’ll Keep Your Money Secure
As part of a Body Corporate, you and other property owners need to pay levies in order to cover expenses, such as insurance and the maintenance of common areas. For your peace of mind, collected levies are held in a trust account, similar to a solicitor’s trust account – that is audited independently every two months. You’ll also have 24/7 secure access to your information through our owner portal – so you’ll always know what’s happening with your account.
Strata has an in-house chartered accountant, chartered secretary and qualified accounts staff. We can take care of your annual budgets, prepare your financial reports, submit your GST returns, make sure your invoices and expenses are taken care of and invest surplus funds for you. An independent accountant will file your Body Corporate’s annual income tax return.
We’ll Deal With Third Parties
On behalf of your Body Corporate we can deal directly with utility companies, solicitors, valuers and other professional bodies. In a larger Body Corporate it’s common to have an on-site building manager. Strata can handle the contract between the Body Corporate and building manager, who then provides you with a monthly report on the complex.
Bodies Corporate that spend a lot on long-term maintenance, or that need a “Building Warrant of Fitness” usually employ an independent company to make sure the building is safe, sanitary, and complies with the provisions of the Building Act, the Health and Safety in Employment Act, and the Resource Management Act. A Body Corporate is a community, and all communities face challenges. To help you address these, we’ll tailor our services to suit your situation.
When you come on board with Strata, we’ll appoint a Body Corporate Manager to look after your interests and build knowledge of your Body Corporate’s unique needs. Through them, you’ll have access to all the specialist knowledge at Strata.
Switching to Strata is easy. Just contact us and we’ll take care of all the formalities, at no cost.
