DRG to host vertical living webinar

02 Jun 2020

The Docklands Representative Group (DRG) will host a webinar on June 18 focused on help- ing local residential strata communities prepare for the world post COVID-19.

Led by DRG member and Docklands resident Dr Janette Corcoran, the webinar will discuss a number of pressing issues for owners’ corporations (OCs) dealing with the gradual easing of state government restrictions from June.

Featuring Strata Title Lawyers principal and regular Docklands News, Southbank News and CBD News columnist Tom Bacon, Dr Corcoran said the webinar would help OCs deal with many important decisions they were likely to face in the coming months.

“When COVID19 hit our vertical villages, volunteer owners’ corporation committees had to make many on-the-run decisions about clos- ing facilities, restricting entry and determining cleaning schedules,” she said. “Many of these decisions were made with little external guidance, which saw approaches vary greatly – and the ramifications of some decisions will likely have a long tail. Now that COVID-19 restric- tions in Victoria are beginning to be lifted, OCs are again faced with some tough decisions.”

“Do they simply lift these restrictions or do they have a responsibility to manage resident behaviour? And this is all happening against a backdrop of financial stress with many reports of fee non-payment and owner confusion about what can be waived, reduced or deferred.”

The free webinar, to be held at 5pm on June 18, will largely discuss two key issues:

- Reopening common property; and

- Waiving, delaying or reducing OC fees and interest – what can be legally done?
