When Should we Discuss the Change Over
There is a lot involved in taking over a new Development into an Operational Building
The Sooner the better, well before the defects liability starts and before any owner or resident wants to move in. For discussion, we would recommend about a year before the defects liability period is expected to start.
The more the Building Management can have prepared, the better the team can start and “hit the ground running” and the more effective the operations management will actually be.
It’s a Ramping up process, not an all-in at once scenario.
We work with you to achieve your expectations and understand what the Developer needs and what the strata manager/committee also needs.
