I own a unit in a block of 5. We have a Body Corporate

Customer Question
I own a unit...

I own a unit in a block of 5. We have a Body Corporate Management Company appointed. Our AGM was early May 2017. The minutes were incorrect and I asked the Body Corp to amend. This has not been done. I have sent emails and made phone calls to the Body Corp re wanting to speak about other issues and there has been no response other than automated email replies. This is not good enough as we pay them to look after our group of units. How can I get them to respond to us, I am not the only owner that cant make contact with the body corp

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? And have you consulted a local attorney?

In Victoria, no not yet, not sure what to do or where to go

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been officially filed? If so, what?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Before the AGM the body corp arranged for two quotes for the painting of all the units exterior. Several of the owners were not happy with the two quotes so I found another painter to quote. At the AGM those present agreed that the third quotes was acceptable and that the Body corp would notify all other owners of the decision. The successful painter's quote that was agreed upon was to be contacted to let him know that he was successful, he was never notified and the other owners also were not notified.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
