In our line of work, we tend to deal with a lot of strata, building and property managers. While it may seem that these roles are quite similar and sometimes even overlap, our many years in the industry have helped us to identify the distinct differences between these roles, an insight we would love to share!
A strata manager is a licensed professional who manages and maintains a strata building on behalf of the Owners Corporation. The strata manager handles the business side of things to ensure all tenants are happy and taken care of, this includes the arranging of meetings, repairs and maintenance, as well as the management of the financial affairs. In addition to this, the strata manager will have a direct relationship with their tenants, responding to any issues or complaints they may have and strives to have them resolved in a timely and effective manner.
A building manager is someone who either lives on site or is there most of the time. When it comes to strata, the building manager is in charge of taking care of and maintaining the building. If a defect is identified in the building, the building manager will report it to the strata manager for repair. Once this repair is scheduled, the contractors will contact the building manager for any permissions they may require.
Unlike the previous two roles, a property manager is appointed to a strata building by a real estate agency to represent the owner, landlord, property and its tenants. A property manager can be thought of as a mediator as they handle dealings between the parties within a strata, this may involve managing tenants, collecting rent and organising repair and maintenance where necessary.
One thing all these roles have in common is that they work to maintain a high standard for tenants in the joint housing community, a standard BellMont works to uphold through our many services.
If you are within the strata sector and think you may require our services for the repair or maintenance of one of your buildings, remember, our help is only a click away…
My wife and I are closing on a property right now and are having an inspector come out and look at the property next week. Having this would help with filing for the strata report so that we know if there are any problems in the house. I just want to get it done quickly so that we can move in.

About a week ago, I was talking to my cousin, and they mentioned that they were thinking of investing in the housing market. They want to give people a place to live and get some income out of it. However, my cousin is a busy person, and he doesn't have time to take care of it himself. Thank you so much for pointing out that a strata manager can help to make sure tenants are happy on behalf of the strata owners. I will have to talk to him about a strata developments manager.

It was mentioned that the strata manager has contact with the tenants and make sure all issues get resolved as quickly as possible. My father recently purchased an apartment building in a city that he doesn't live in, and is looking for someone to run it for him. I wonder if he has looked into a strata manager to help with that situation.

Thank you for pointing out that as property managers oversee negotiations between strata parties, they might be viewed as mediators. I recently graduated and am looking for a job in the house manager field. I'll locate a company that can assist me in locating a job.
