Owners Corporation is created when a plan of subdivision is registered with Land Victoria. A person that owns a Lot within the Plan of Subdivision becomes a member of the Owners Corporation. An Owners Corporation manages all matters of the common property whether it be a residential, commercial or mixed-use plan of subdivision.

The boundaries of Common Property are shown on the Plan of Subdivision. Common property includes any parts of the land, buildings and airspace that are not lots on the plan of subdivision. It may include gardens, passages, walls, pathways, driveways, stairs, lifts, foyers and fences. The common property is collectively owned by the lot owners.
 

An Owners Corporation Manager is responsible for the Owners Corporation’s operations and ensures that the Owners Corporation operates effectively whilst meeting all legislative requirements. This includes regularly communicating with Lot Owners, providing advice and direction, and completing various tasks. If a Committee is appointed, the Manager must work closely with its members, in order to properly understand how the Committee wants the Owners Corporation managed.

To remove an Owners Corporation manager (regardless of whether their contract has expired or not), the owners corporation should:
  1. Conduct a vote at a general meeting or hold a postal ballot to remove a manager; only an ordinary resolution is required (51% in favour).
  2. Follow the process for the removal or termination of the manager outlined in the contract of appointment. If there is a valid contract, the manager may need to be paid out for the remainder of the contract.
