Yes and this can be done in a number of ways. The most appropriate way would be to become a Director of the Owner Management Company and this is done by putting your name forward at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). This is done through Absolute Property Management as it is necessary to put your name forward in a timely fashion, normally 21 days prior to the AGM. Another way is to be co-opted as a Director and this can be done by the existing Directors, co-opting you at any time and this is then ratified at the next AGM. Ultimately, the decision as to whether you can become a Director lies with the members and the current Directors who decide whether you can become a Director. In reality, it is never an issue and normally anyone who puts their name forward wishing to become a Director is more than welcome. Your responsibilities as a Director are to work for the common good of the complex and to liaise with Absolute Property Management on policy decisions and the day to day management of the complex. If your complex or development doesn’t have a management company it is still possible for you to become involved by organising a residents association and Absolute Property Management can advise on how management associations can be set up and properly constituted. They do differ slightly from your responsibilities as a Director in that directorships carry with them the responsibility of statutory duties in the same way as any other company Director. The responsibilities of a Director should be taken seriously and a Director should be in a position to work with Absolute Property Management through regular contact with your appointed coordinator so that you can review progress and monitor quotations and invoicing and attend meetings. Absolute Property Management insists on a minimum of 4 meetings per annum.
