Ten years of experience, or one year of experience ten times over? While many people claim to be experts or specialists in their chosen profession, how can you know if they really are? Maybe they have been doing the same job year after year, but have not become any more knowledgeable or accomplished than when they first started. There is competition in every industry, but there has never been more than there is now in management rights.

Rules are interesting. Some think the more rules the better while others subscribe to the school of discretionary decision making. I am a fan of some common sense latitude in most decision making processes, particularly those involving the individual merits of a finance application.

Problem is, hard and fast rules will inevitably gravitate to a lowest common denominator environment where we will all be compelled to walk as slow as our slowest borrower. Have a look at some of the people giving evidence at the banking commission and I would proposeRead More →

Some time ago I published an article on what I thought was reasonable for a Body Corporate to request from a buyer of management rights, in considering whether or not a Body Corporate committee should consent to the transfer of management rights agreements to the buyer. This is an important issue, because under the Body Corporate and Community Management legislation, a Body Corporate committee must not unreasonably withhold approval to a transfer.

In some cases, even with no photos or generic images of a beach and a café. We all know what the beach and a café looks like! What about the actual location? You all want to know at least the name of the suburb, such as the awfully specific and informative ‘Greater Gold Coast’ or ‘Central Sunshine Coast’. Have you ever heard of these? Because I certainly haven’t! The Cambridge English Dictionary definition ofRead More →
