The Role of A Owners Corporation Manager- VIC

The SSKB team of professional Strata Managers are fully equipped with the skills, knowledge, and experience to successfully implement strategies to deal with the day-to-day operations of an Owners Corporation community. 

But sometimes people get confused about the duties of a Strata Manager.  

Each state in Australia has different legislative requirements and terminology resulting in many ways to refer to the topic of Strata Management, but the role is exactly the same. 


The Role of a Owners Corporation Manager

The role of a Strata Manager is to support strata communities to meet the legislative and administrative obligations of running an Owners Corporation. 

The specific duties performed may change from community to community dependent on its size, complexity, and the involvement of the Owners Corporation Committee. That role is spelled out in the management agreement. A Strata Manager can only take instructions from the Committee. 

Some of a Strata Managers tasks include: 

  • preparing and distributing meeting notices, agendas, and minutes; 
  • attending meetings; 
  • provide guidance and expert advice on legislative matters; 
  • paying invoices for works carried out; 
  • keeping financial accounts; 
  • providing continuity of management processes and record keeping; 
  • ensuring appropriate insurance is in place and up to date 
  • administration and handling day-to-day paperwork 


Strata Managers often take on the duties of the Secretary which involves: 

  • Calling Committee and General Meetings 
  • sending out Fee notices and breach notices 
  • sending out the minutes of meetings and
  • Managing the Owners Corporation’s money. 


So, are there things a Strata Managers does not do? 

A Strata Manager is different from a Building Manager whose duties may include the maintenance of Common Property, however a Committee may ask a Strata Manager to arrange for those services to be performed. 

Strata Managers are not real estate or letting agents. 

A Strata Manager does not set levies nor make decisions on running of a Strata Community – that is prerogative and obligation of the Lot Owners and, by extension, the Committee. 

They cannot give legal advice, but they can point to relevant clauses in state legislation that may assist Committees to make a decision.
