FAQ's

If you are unfamiliar with the services of a property management company, please get in touch. Our team will be happy to help you however, some of the most commonly asked questions are answered below. More detail is given in the guides, which are available to download below.

  1. 1
    Why do I pay a building charge?

    Your building charge is your legal apportionment of the share of the costs of maintaining and insuring the communal areas of your building in accordance with the terms of your property. Typically this may include such costs as the cleaning of communal areas, ground maintenance, lift maintenance, repairs and maintenance within the communal areas and which may also include sections of the building that you do not directly benefit from the use of.

    The body corporate will detail the specific items which are included in your building charge.

  2. 2
    How is the building charge calculated?

    The body corporate prepares a budget for your property each year according to the criteria set out in the individual leases and based on a review of the expenditure for the previous year and any proposed expenditure for the forthcoming years.
    A provision might also be made for cyclical repairs of building fabric and items such as internal or external redecoration and also future, unforeseen expenditure. This is known as a reserve or sinking fund. The budget is then usually discussed and mutually agreed with representatives of your Management Company or Residents Association before the start of the budget year.

  3. 3
    How do I know what my building charge is spent on?

    At the end of each year, statements are prepared by an independent accountant showing income and expenditure for the block.
    These statements are circulated to all property owners by the body corporate agent.

  4. 4
    How do I pay my building charge?

    The best way to pay your building charge is by direct deposit on receiving an invoice. The invoice may stipulate that it is to be paid quarterly or annually in advance. You can request copies of invoices from your body corporate, or contact us here at Franchi Realty.

  5. 5
    What happens if I don’t pay my building charge?

    Under the obligations of your strata you are required to pay your building charge and may face legal proceedings if you fail to comply.
    If you are experiencing difficulties keeping up your payments please contact your Body Corporate Manager or Franchi Realty at finance@frealty.com.au.
