We care for your building as though it were our own. Our managing Director Graeme Perkins is always available either by phone or e-mail.
Unlike most of our competitors, we don’t charge extra for the software we use to maintain your records.We offer full refunds up to 3 months from our start date. If you are not happy with our services. Your contract will simply be cancelled, and everything you paid up to that time will be refunded.
In addition, under our management agreement with bodies corporate, clause 11 states that if it is found at any time that we have in some way not complied with the Code of Conduct for Body Corporate Managers contained in Schedule 2 of the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997, we will reimburse the aggrieved Body Corporate 3 months management fees applicable to their scheme.
A LOT OF BODY CORPORATE UNIT OWNERS ARE MORE THAN A LITTLE CURIOUS AS TO HOW THEIR LEVIES ARE SPENT.
The table below shows the average levy allotments by percentage for 15-25 unit buildings without swimming pools; that are currently being managed by the Body Corporate Headquarters.The first two columns are figures of competitors in the capital cities and for Gold Coast, the third are BCHQ’s numbers.
The actual amount spent is called the total administrative fund. The amount from the levies that isn’t spent goes into a sinking fund that is set aside for building repairs. Here are the figures:
We have taken out comparative figures of 1525 lot buildings without swimming pools that we manage and listed the main costs of running the building as a percentage of the total Administrative Fund Expenses.
|City Industry||Gold Coast||The BCHQ|
|Repairs and Maintenance||14||21||7|
|Lawns & Gardens||3||10||5|
BCHQ manages to save its clients an average of 53% of the levies they pay monthly. That means that if a building is ever in need of some repairs or even a bit of sprucing up, unit owners can draw on those savings instead of passing around a hat.
Note: In most individual cases, you will find that the numbers are usually not near the average. Levy spending is decided upon by unit owners, and is thus difficult to predict.
