OR are you at the point where you believe the appointment of a compulsory managing agent is required:


An application can be made directly with the NSW Civil & Administrative Tribunal. An Adjudicator can make an order appointing a compulsory strata manager if satisfied that the scheme is not functioning properly or the owners corporation has failed to perform its duties.

Upon application the applicant must provide evidence. This may include:

  • no annual general or executive committee meetings being convened
  • little or no funds available
  • no executive committee
  • no insurance
  • no common property repairs or maintenance being carried out


An applicant will also need to provide a letter of consent from a licenced strata managing agent willing to manage the scheme.
