If you’ve just brought into or moved into a community strata management building you may be wondering what area of the lot is your responsibility and what area comes under the responsibility of the body corporate or strata management company. Much of this will depend on what state you have purchased in and they type of scheme that is run in the building or complex, however, many areas of responsibility are the same from state to state. 

The strata management company will look after areas such as the pool, recreational facilities, bbq areas and digital signage Melbourne. They will also look after the maintenance and repair of any gardens or areas that fall into common property. Common property is where things can get confusing. In some complexes, you own the property from the road at the front of your unit through to the fence at the back of your unit; in others, you only own the unit and the land your unit is sitting on. In the situation of a mixed use strata management you may only own the unit and any balconies. However, common property is owned by all of the lot owners – each lot owner had an interest of ownership, but the strata management or body corporate is given the power to deal with common property and act as if they were the owner. 

Depending on the scheme your building is under, and depending on how the buildings are built (separate standing or joined together), the body corporate may also have ruling over things like the gutters, any co-joining walls and stairwells or lifts. As an owner, this could mean your building insurance is covered by the strata management, as are any fixtures in the unit (especially if they are fixed to co-joining walls). It is always a good idea to obtain a copy of the strata management insurance policy so you know what is covered and what isn’t. 

As a new owner of a unit inside the strata plan, there are two really important things you need to do. The first is to obtain building plans so you know exactly where your property is and where common property is. The second is to read the by-laws of the property – this will give you guidelines as to what you can and can’t do (paint the outside of the unit, make changes to the property, park in common property etc). By doing these two simple things, you will know what you can and can’t do and what you will need to get permission for. You will also be able to tell what you need to pay for if something goes wrong, and what costs the strata covers. 

Living in a strata managed unit or building can provide good marketing option, but doing all your research before changing or amending anything in your unit can save you a lot of money and time on sorting out issues in the future.

We are the people who discover many facts and findings and are the ones who are eventually the very soles of whom are our own independence lies on. I am a human, who decides based on my ego and my skills to gradually ease into the prosperity I truly deserve. It is not easy to however, climb the ladder of success in one go and yet we find ourselves truly exhausted with the various accomplishments we are made to achieve. The world is not a simple place where you or I can live in harmony. We all face the disclaiming events which are presented by the grandeur and magnificence we exile to the outside world. Have you ever seen people feel exhilarated by their efforts put to test and yet also somehow; eventually see to put through. I am in fact the positivity that stands between your efforts and your work. You derive on who you are. Independent, strong and charismatic.

How pollution affects us

My week is continually ending and yet; I feel the presence of many efforts after the evening air; crowded cities and embankments many of whom old housewives are carrying around these old and fashionable promotional plastic bags from Sydney after the grocery haul was complete and those very famous other items which I find highly amusing.

May I just say that as a matter of fact; we all face those controversial issues of seeing or rather faces being splatted on walls and shirts used for promotional purposes which carry out those impressive ways to attract those loony and yet; important necessities which is usually the essentials of such promotional items in the various markets out there. Hence, we should identify whether a crisis is in built within us or is it just we follow blind; and seem to fall into the same trap all over again and again.

The unused or thrown bags on streets

I face, many issue on a daily report of several outcomes and bursts. When I walk down the street I see the sways of the plastic branded bags flying across the streets polluting the very neighbourhoods it holds so dearly to. I face the million streets of owning and however; seems a difficult to procure for our streets are different to what we may never accomplish – all these things sometimes do just pollute the area and is often under the very restrictions of having a difficult situation to which I can never help but induce myself to. The place where we live stays polluted ad no one is interested vaguely in picking up their trash of bags and other items. How can we possibly turn a blind eye to this very situation?
