Hi Paddocks Press fan,

We are running a promotion for the Home Owners' Association Management short course - register and pay by Friday, 29 July 2016, and choose one of three giveaways below! T&Cs apply.

This month, Nicole explains some meeting concepts in the 'Introduction to Meetings' video, whilst Carryn explains and provides a remedy for a body corporate where an owner fails to maintain their section or EUA.

We often get questions regarding cellphone masts on common property, which Zerlinda explains in her article this month.

There is very little information regarding the legislation for the management of Home Owners' Associations, however Anton unpacks some of the vital acronyms in his most recent article below.

Kind regards,
