An NSW Lot Owner is wondering whether they can have an electronic meeting to carry out electronic voting for a special levy to be struck? Leanne Habib, Premium Strata provides the following response.
Question: Can we hold a meeting electronically and just have everybody use electronic voting on the issue of a special levy via email to our strata manager rather than having another face to face meeting?
I live in a smallish strata complex with 10 units. Most of the owners are fairly hands-on and want to have lots of meetings to discuss things. We have discussed doing some additional landscaping that will require a special levy and understand a special levy needs to be struck at a meeting.
We don’t have any other need for a meeting right now. Can we hold this meeting electronically and use electronic voting for the issue via email to our strata manager rather than having a face to face meeting?
Can we use electronic voting or do we need to have some physical representation of the meeting? We have approved electronic voting at a previous meeting so that’s not an issue. We are just not sure how to proceed.
Answer: Whether or not you need a meeting depends on whether you’ve adopted “pre-meeting” electronic voting or electronic voting at the meeting.
Whether or not you need a meeting depends on whether you’ve adopted “pre-meeting” electronic voting or electronic voting at the meeting. Your strata manager will be able to determine which, and, in either case simply needs to issue an agenda/notice of meeting in relation to the special levy proposed to be struck.
