You have been legally appointed as manager of Owners Corporation PS123456A by the OC Committee. In this role, you are continually confronted with a range of questions and difficult issues which you are required

  to address and report back to the OC Committee. The Model rules apply. Owners Corporation PS123456A is a mixed use “Heritage” development situated in Ballarat, Victoria. It occupies an entire block bounded by Steinman Street, Peel Street and Haymes Crescent (labelled as Hayman Crescent on the PS subdivision). Peel Street is one of the oldest streets in Ballarat, and the development site includes a number of old miners’ cottages as well as three former shops fronting Peel Street. The rear of the site was formerly occupied by a large Printworks. Planning permission was granted by the City of Ballarat on the condition that the miners’ cottages must be refurbished (but may be extended and modernised inside), that the former shops must be refurbished for use as commercial premises, and that the old Printworks was to be demolished and replaced with new constructions (See street views of the development).   The completed site consists of:

  • 9 Residential Lots and 3 Commercial Lots fronting Peel (Note: the commercial lots are lots 10, 30 and 31 and ownership of all three lots has been retained by the developer).
  • 6 Residential Lots fronting Haymes
  • 13 x Double story Residential Lots on the old Printworks site, entering from Eureka
  • Apart from the three commercial lots owned by the developer, all residential lots are owned by owner/occupiers or investors (and therefore tenanted).
  Car Parking: It is important to note the unusual car parking arrangements on the Plan of Subdivision (see the PDF subdivision plan that accompanies this assignment). These associated Lots are described as “PT1”, “PT2” etc:
  • Lots 1,2,3,4,5,9,10,16,20,21,25,28,29 have accessory carparks associated with their
  • Lots 17,18,19,22,23,24,26,27 are double story residences with lock garages
  • Lots 11,12,13,14,15,16 have no allocated car parking and must park in Hayman
  • Lots 6 and 7 have no allocated car parking and must park in Peel
  • Lots 30 and 31 have no allocated car parking and must park in Steinman or Peel As these lots are on a corner, parking must by necessity be some distance from the properties (see parking street views)
  Common Property No 1 is the central Driveway (known as Eureka Way), with access from both Steinman Street and Hayman Crescent. Also included in common property is all the infrastructure running beneath the common property, including water, power, sewerage, telecommunications and storm water. The Plan of Subdivision states that the median (ie middle) point of walls marks the boundary of the common property. This means that the Owners Corporation owns the outside walls and roofs and each owner owns the inside skin of walls and the airspace inside the unit.   Report Research
