SCA (WA) PRESIDENT REPORT introducing incoming President as of November 2016

Scott Bellerby Across Australia, the Strata Industry manages $1.2Trillion dollars in assets, and in WA the rapid expansion of Strata Titled properties has, according to incoming Strata Community Australia (WA) President Scott Bellerby “created an increased pressure for legislative reform and tighter industry regulation”. Mr Bellerby, who has recently replaced outgoing President Rachel Cosentino, a lawyer with Slater & Gordon, praised the former President’s work with pushing professional standards up the agenda of SCA (WA). “In the absence of state based legislation and registration requirements for strata community managers, arguably the biggest accomplishment of SCA (WA) this year has been the establishment, in conjunction with the National office, of a clear policy for the accreditation pathway of strata managers.” The aim of an accreditation pathway is to develop and expand the strata manager’s professional competence to meet industry standard obligations, thereby, maintaining an effective and competent service to their clients. This policy will also maintain public confidence in Management Members as it defines the pathway members take to stay abreast with legislation and developmental changes in the strata community within WA. SCA (WA) and National have partnered with RMIT to deliver on a new Diploma in Strata Community Management and with Central TAFE to deliver on a Certificate IV in Strata Community Management. It’s estimated that by 2030, the Strata industry in Australia will manage as much value as the Superannuation industry does today. Mr Bellerby believes that “accreditation is necessary in its own right, but also critical to create appeal in a growth industry that is desperate to attract quality, professional personnel in coming years”. SCA (WA) delivered over 35 education and training workshops in 2016, an outstanding achievement Mr Bellerby put down to the commitment of the President, Council and Education Committee. “The passion of the Council and many educators, who volunteer their time to improve knowledge and professionalism is outstanding. There is a strong team of committed people and it makes me very hopeful for the future”, Mr Bellerby said. Membership to the Strata Communities Australia, WA is open to Lot Owners, Strata Management Companies and their staff and supporting Suppliers to the industry.

RESIDENTIAL STRATA Majestic Rise, Applecross Location: Project:

Applecross Exterior one-off repaint with access issues Comments: Perrott Painting were engaged to supply our service in carrying out the repaint project of this building in Applecross. The property had fretting and static cracking in the rendered surfaces (this is crazed or mapped looking cracking) and prescribed the use of an Elastomeric Membrane. The repaint project, with its difficult access and specialized coating system, was completed in a timely fashion with a great result. “It was a big decision by the Body Corporate to have Perrott Painting paint our five storey Applecross apartment block - but it was well worthwhile. The transformation was truly amazing and Perrott's staff were extremely professional, obliging and a pleasure to work with.” Barry Thornton Chair Majestic Rise Council of Owners

Smarter Strata Insurance Australia-wide. Strata Insurance Products – It’s not all about price! With the strata market continually growing in WA and high competition amongst Insurers, it is extremely important for brokers, strata managers and owners councils to be aware of what they are purchasing. Yes, we all want the most competitive price for our Insurance, however at what cost. The strata products available on the market today vary greatly in coverage and benefits alike. Please be aware that when deciding on which product and which Insurer to go with that you are considering the coverage and additional benefits provided under each product and don’t simply make your decision on the cheapest premium an Insurer is offering. Cheap premiums are great up front until you have a claim and realise another Insurer could have provided cover or a benefit you don’t have or could have paid out more in the event of the claim. We at Longitude Insurance pride ourselves on providing not only competitive premiums but also offering a market leading product so brokers, strata managers and owners councils can rest assured they are well covered. Our security AAI Limited T/as Vero (part of the Suncorp Group) is one of the largest Insurers in Australia which should also be considered when choosing your Strata Insurer.

It convincingly showed me that we have a very good strata manager to protect our assets. Thanks for yesterday. I really enjoyed it and came away with some good ideas.. David

Murray

I would like to offer my congratulations on the Strata Symposium - I though it was fantastic!! I got so much from the presentations - Each was so worthwhile and relevant, particularly now as the momentum towards higher density living increases. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by the SCA's progressiveness (as evidenced by the topics presented), and am impressed by the active role the association plays to improve strata living. Thank you! Gillian Rodoreda (Lot owner)


SCA (WA) 2016 SYMPOSIUM - LOT OWNERS PROGRAMME Thank you to all of our Lot Owner Programme Presenters for making the Lot Owner programme such an amazing success, as you can read from the Lot Owner feedback quotes in this issue of e-news.


MATV DESIGN INSTALLATION AND SERVICE Many older style communal antenna systems are cabled in what is known as a ‘looped system’. This means a single cable is looped in and out of every unit terminating at the wall outlet of each unit. With this design, if there is a failure or interference with an individual wall outlet, it has the potential to adversely impact on many other units that are linked with it. The impact of this issue is significant costs to the Strata Company in ongoing maintenance, as well as frustration and inconvenience to residents as it takes time to access multiple units in an attempt to locate the source of the problem.

We specialise in the design, installation & service of Master Antenna Television (MATV) systems. We combine today’s leading technology with over three decades of experience to implement MATV systems that are reliable, cost effective and deliver clear, crisp signals to your entire strata property. Antenna Masters recommend that any new communal antenna system includes a separate cable feed into each unit to ensure that the possible failure of an individual wall outlet will not adversely impact on other units, thereby minimising future maintenance costs.

We custom design each system to cater of your specific requirements providing practical solutions to your commercial antenna systems. Every aspect is engineered to supply your premises with optimum quality digital television reception, from the antenna, mounts and mast through to the most effective amplifier and distribution system. It is important to remember that the efficient and equitable distribution of the TV signals to all corners of a multi­residential complex is very much dependent on the design of the system. The poor design of such a major piece of infrastructure can potentially cause significant future costs in ongoing maintenance.

We have talent in our midst... PAT McMAHON of CHAMBERS FRANKLYN STRATA MANAGEMENT When we learnt of Pat’s interest outside of strata management, we hoped to be able to share it with you. Thanks to Pat for generously contributing. If you would like to share your interest, please email admin.wa@stratacommunity.org.au - E-News Content. I’ve been an amateur actor with Dark Psychic Productions (based at Memorial Hall, Hamilton Hill) since 2013. I’ve played a variety of onstage roles in several plays as follows: A zombie, and Chainsaw (a slightly unhinged biker) in the stage play “Maul of the Dead Charlie Minion (a minion to an evil vampire queen) in the stage play “Sorority House of the Dead” Henry, a mental asylum patient in the stage play “Cosi” Professor Leeder in the stage musical “The Brain from Planet X” Mr Hughes, a wealthy art dealer, in the stage play "The Temperamental Artist" The Janitor in the stage musical “Zombie Prom” And I’m currently rehearsing a role in “Addams Family - The Musical” where I’m in the ensemble as an Addams ancestor - a grave-digger. It’s due to be performed in late November / early December 2016 (flyer attached) I’ve also participated in several student films, and a bit part as a sex-shop owner in a yet-to-be released romantic comedy feature film titled “You Can't Play the Game If You Don't Know the Rules” I also appear each Halloween at Adventure World’s “Fright Nights” as a wandering entertainer - a zombie.


Underinsurance … an ongoing problem for the strata sector In spite of the fact that legislation requires Strata Companies to insure the building for replacement value, it is possible that even with a valuation, the sum insured is incorrect. According to Strata Live, “the obligations of a Strata Company’s committee members are substantial and they can be held personally liable for their actions and decisions made on behalf of lot owners. In addition, lot owners have an unlimited liability to cover any potential shortfall in insurance funds in the event that a loss is not adequately covered by the sums insured in an insurance policy.”

Legislation The Strata Titles Act 1985 (WA) requires Strata Companies to insure the building for replacement value, allowing for rebuilding or replacement to a condition as new. It also defines what property comprises the building, and provides that removal of debris and professional fees need to be taken into account. In order to ensure a correct valuation, a Strata Company should engage the services of a suitably qualified and skilled valuer to correctly calculate the value for insurance purposes, not “market value” as some owners mistakenly do.

Zoning changes An additional consideration for valuations is the impact of changes to zoning since original build. Leonie Milonas, State Manager WA for Strata Community Insurance notes, “Many local councils make changes to zoning requirements over time that would have an impact on the cost of reinstatement following a loss”. Consider, for example, a strata building that currently has no dedicated car park, but where council zoning changes require that in the event of a total loss to the building a car park will need to be built. Under this scenario, the building insurance would need to reflect the increased cost of rebuilding and/or replacement associated with the car park to ensure the building is fully covered. Some other considerations include known hazards (e.g. asbestos material used in roofing), the effect of Goods and Services Tax, and increased costs associated with events of a certain nature – including catastrophes such as earthquakes or cyclones.

Timelines in the Calculation of a Sum Insured It is vital to ensure escalation of costs has been correctly calculated from the date of the valuation, to the eventual end of the rebuilding/reinstatement period the valuer has considered appropriate for the building in question. The valuer should clearly show the following periods as a minimum, when arriving at the sum insured for rebuilding/replacement: 1. Date of Valuation; 2. Start Date of Period of Insurance; 3. End Date of Period of Insurance, assuming a loss could occur on the last day of the Period of Insurance; 4. Post loss: (a) Removal of Debris / Planning period; (b) Rebuild period; (c) Fit-out and completion; 5. Re-occupation.

Partner for protection Milonas states “Strata Company committee members need to be aware of the implications of underinsurance and their personal liability for decisions made on behalf of lot owners. They can mitigate this exposure by ensuring they partner with a respected and experienced valuer and have the correct replacement/reinstatement insurance covers in place.” http://stratacommunityinsure.com.au/

Update & maintain the appearance of your strata without emptying the sinking fund When you are suddenly faced with a bill for an urgent levy and there’s not enough money in the sinking fund, it can be hard to keep on top of maintenance requirements. But repainting a strata complex doesn’t always mean a large sum of money upfront. Programmed Property Services (Programmed) long-term painting maintenance programmes enable you to get the work done when you need it coupled with flexible payment options. For instance, our popular Classic Programme allows you to get the bulk of work carried out upfront, while payment is evenly

distributed over the entire life of the programme. Typically, a repaint of the property is carried out in the first year, while maintenance work, including washing and section painting, is carried out annually for each subsequent year of the programme. Programmed are experts when it comes to specialised and complex strata projects. Plus, we have one of the largest and most experienced team in Western Australia. Take a look at our video to see what long-term maintenance programmes are available.

And, if you would like to find out how a sinking fund or other levies can be utilised to fund maintenance, we have also produced a comprehensive White Paper analysing the benefits and issues facing sinking funds around Australia. Click here to download this FREE white paper or, for a no-obligation, free quote for a maintenance programme that suits your property and budget, contact our local Belmont office on 08 6218 6300.
