How to Engage a New Owners Corporations Manager

To remove an owners corporation manager, the owners corporation should:

  • conduct a vote at a general meeting or hold a postal ballot to remove a manager
  • follow the process for the removal or termination of the manager outlined in the contract of appointment.

Alternatively, your owners corporation may apply to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) for an order terminating the manager’s contract.

Once a manager’s appointment is terminated, the manager has 28 days to return all funds and records to the owners corporation.
