WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?
The success or failure of any scheme is in the hands of the body corporate. As an owner, you can make a difference. Don't be complacent - be involved. Play
an active part in the day-to-day affairs of your scheme. Attend General Meetings, or if you cannot attend, give another owner your proxy. Keep your section in a
state of good repair and keep your exclusive use areas neat and tidy. Show consideration to your neighbours and use your section and the common property
in a way that will not interfere with other residents' rights to use theirs. Above all, be a good neighbour.
