Owners Corporation Network

This is an Australian organisation similar to BCCG but with a longer history. It has interesting free material but as it is an Australian site, please keep in mind:

  • In New Zealand we generally refer to Bodies Corporate, but in Australia they tend to refer more generically to Strata Schemes
  • The law and practice must be read as being applicable in Australia only (plus each state has different legislation governing Bodies Corporate or Strata schemes). New Zealand law is behind in some governance areas where anomalies have been addressed by some Australian State and Federal laws.
