On occasion you are going to require expert legal advice when dealing with Owners Corporation matters, from arrears recovery to contractual disputes, and issues you may never expect to encounter. You, as an individual lot owner, Owners Corporation Committee or Owners Corporation Manager can get so far trying to understand the legislation and second guess the outcomes you may wish to achieve, but nothing compares to good legal advice to assist you in achieving a positive outcome.
Over a period of years either sitting in VCAT or attempting to negotiate ‘Commercial Resolutions’ I have found an investment in legal expertise to be a necessity.
From experience relating to OC specific matters I am happy to recommend the services of;
