The Owners Corporation Committee is a legally structured group of Owners pursuant to the Owners Corporations Act 2006 (Vic). On behalf of each Owners Corporation's within Mason Sq, the Committee manages and maintains the common property and ensures the best interests of the Owners Corporation are preserved through the establishment of OC Rules.
Committee members must be Lot owners. They hold office until a new committee is elected.
Amongst other things the Committee members must act honestly and in good faith, exercise due care and diligence, not make improper use of their position as a member to gain a personal advantage and report to the Owners Corporation at each Annual General Meeting.
Like any other OC Committee, there are certain expectations for Lot Owners who might consider joining one of the Mason Sq Committee's their Lot is part of. The expectations include that OC Committee members will attend all meetings, read all papers provided to committee members, actively participate in general activities of the Committee, take a leadership role in contributing to workings of the Committee and attend the relevant Annual General Meeting.
Interest in joining the Committee should be communicated through the OC Manager or per instructions issued in the AGM agenda. New members are always most welcome.
There are a total of 9 OC's at Mason Sq, but if you're an Owner, your Lot may only be part of a few.
To assist the Committee to maintain your high-quality environment a Maintenance Plan has been established. Developed by independent specialists, following the Maintenance Plan assists the property retains its value through a formal cycle that ensures maintenance of major capital items are addressed within predetermined times.
In conjunction with the Building Manager and the OC Manager, the Committee reviews maintenance issues at their regular meetings and formally reports to the Owners Corporation at each Annual General Meeting.
