Choosing a New Body Corporate Manager

The day-to-day management of a strata complex works best when there is a friendly, harmonious relationship between Committees and their Body Corporate Manager. Occasionally there are personality conflicts or business service issues that cannot be resolved by negotiation with the parties. If you are having trouble getting along with the particular person in your strata company who has been allocated to your complex, we suggest you ask the body corporate management company to change to another person. It is is reasonably common to have personality conflicts with particular individuals and mature people realise that we all have aspects of our own specific personalities that can make it difficult for us to get along with a few people sometimes. No one is perfect and we simply cannot get along with every single person in the world

If the conflict is not to do with clashing personalities and is based by continuing poor performance or sloppy administration and continues after your committee has complained repeatedly, a change in body corporate management may be the best answer.

The key to changing body corporate management is to read your existing contract carefully to find the current end date and the procedure to terminate or end the current contract. It may be possible to negotiate with the existing company to end the arrangement, however this can be difficult. Our experience has been that the worst performing companies are the ones who make it the most difficult for clients to be rid of!


If you are considering changing your body corporate management, we at encourage you to look at the People We Know Like and Trust section of this website. We have listed several body corporate management companies who we believe are client-oriented and willing to co-operate with bodies corporate.
