Auckland - Your BC Rules: what's missing?

11 May 2017
5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
REMUERA CLUB (formerly the Commerce Club), Ohinerau St, Remuera. Plenty of car parking close to the Greenlane Motor way exits.

Legislative and local body planning changes in the last 7 years have impacted on Bodies Corporate in many areas of governance (UTA2010/UTR 2011, HSWA, Unitary Plan amongst others).

There has been significant variation in Rule changes to manage those matters, and a wide range of standards of rules now exist across the Body Corporate sector.  

So we are fortunate to have two eminent speakers to address us on this topic:

  • Joanna Pidgeon Principal of Pidgeon Law, and
  • Tim Jones Partner of Glaister Ennor.

Both have kindly agreed to cover this topic for us, including the use of a Case Study to highlight areas of potential concern.

It will be about Rules, what have you missed, what do you wish to know – come along and ask your questions. 

Some considerations for you:

  1. Do you understand your BC rules & what must be in them?
  2. When were your BC rules last reviewed?
  3. Have you thought about implications of brothels or Airbnb operating in your building?
  4. What does the new Auckland Unitary Plan mean for your Body Corporate rules?
  5. What are owners & tenants rights & obligations?

You may wish to bring your BC rules with you to enable you to compare notes with other Chairs.

Also, BCCG  Wellington in March 2015 held a presentation by Liza Fry-Irvine (Pidgeon Law) on this topic – we commend this to you as a pre-read to our 11th May presentation. It's available under Members Resources (only available to financial members).

In addition, there will be:

  • An update on BCCG matters, including the seeking of feedback from members on topics of interest for future 2017 meetings
  • An update BCCG / SCA joint activities 
Cost: Free to financial members; $40 door charge for non-financial members.
