ince our last full collections session for managers in 2014 Strata Corporation collections have changed dramatically, and even the basics remain commonly misunderstood by professionals. This session, presented by Matthew Fischer, will look at:
- Basics- briefly outlining the proper procedures strata corporations need to follow to successfully, inexpensively and reliably collect
unpaid strata fees and special levies, interest on such amounts, and associated legal expenses.
- Practical issues, such as when to file a lien, and when to consider alternative debt collection options.
- Common pitfalls which almost every Strata Manager tends to experience at least once and how to avoid potential errors and liability.
- Positive effect of our recent success in the Court of Appeal in The Owners, Strata Plan KAS 2428 v. Baettig,
- Circumstances where the full legal expenses may not be recoverable – and how to avoid those circumstances.
Following a short break, Maris Holmes will present on “Hot Topics” followed by Q and A. This session will include quick coverage of 10-20 snap topics. Ms. Holmes will summarily address current issues, recent case law and how to easily avoid and correct common errors. The session will be followed by a Q&A on the topics covered for those who want to explore them in greater depth.
