Owners Corporations Act - The Amendments


Amendments to the Owners Corporations Act 2006 are comprehensive and significant. They aim to balance the interests and requirements of different size complexes and strengthen the regulatory responsibilities of developers, managers, decision-making processes, and dispute resolution. This has been a major reform to the Owners Corporation legislation in Victoria.
Please join us for a webinar to understand the key legislative changes and their impact on OC management.

Guest speakers Norman Mermelstein and Neville Sanders will share their insights and discuss what it means for OC managers. The webinar will cover key areas governing OC management including:

  • Functions and Powers
  • Financial Management
  • Meetings and Decisions
  • Committees
  • Managers
  • Rules
  • Owners Corporations Amendment (Short-Stay Accommodation) Act 2018
