In our video series Michael Vumbaca, General Manager at Jamesons Strata discusses how owners can deal with disposed goods on common property.

In the new legislation, an owners corporation now has the right to move goods that have been disposed of on common property. (This does not include cars).

If there has been goods dumped on common property, Owners Corporations now have the right to move them and either sell them or retain them for their own keeping. Before doing this, they need to place an A4 laminated sign on the goods, advising the owner of the actions that are about to be undertaken. A written record of all goods taken must be kept for at least 12 months by the managing agent.

At Jamesons, we believe this is a good thing for the industry, as often people who are leaving a building dump goods. It could be white goods, it could be furniture, and they expect an owners corporation to dispose of them. This new legislation now provides a framework for owners corporations to remove abandoned goods without any repercussions being borne by them.

Jamesons are a family run business that have provided Sydney residents with strata management services for over 50 years. If you would like more information regarding strata management, please contact Jamesons Strata Management on (02) 8969 3400.
