Strata Councils are typically run by volunteers (although they can be paid positions), and unfortunately things just don’t always work out. Conflicts of interest can arise, personalities can conflict and clash, or in certain cases members just can’t commit to the time needed to fulfill their Strata Council duties.
When this happens, and a member needs to be removed from Strata Council, the following needs to occur in order for everything to be done according to the letter of the law.
Here are a few ways for a strata owner to be removed from strata council
1. By majority vote of the owners at a Special General Meeting. The meeting must be demanded in writing by at least 20% of the owners.
2. If a council member is unable or unwilling to perform his or her duties for two months or longer, he or she can be replaced by a new council member to be appointed by the existing strata council, until the next AGM.
As you can see, it’s a fairly simple and straightforward process to have someone removed from Strata Council should the need arise.
