A trusted team
The team are very well known within the region for their experience and expertise, having a combined experience of more than 50 years in strata management services. Our principal owner is 100% hands on, with nearly 21 years in the field; 16 of which have been in Canberra.
Professional, practiced and knowledgeable strata managers have been selected by Signature Strata to ensure our clients have unwavering trust and absolute confidence in the services we provide.
State-of-the-art software specifically developed with advanced accounting methodologies that guarantee clarity and transparency for the purpose of the management of Owners Corporation funds with advanced reporting capabilities is used by Signature Strata. It is an end-to-end solution built specifically for strata community financial statutory and business obligations.
Owners Corporation administration obligations are comprehensive, often with onerous communication requirements depending on the size and complexity of the strata community. Signature Strata manages and maintains all records and correspondence including but not limited to detailed strata rolls, meeting agendas and minutes, and numerous miscellaneous proceedings safe and secure on their behalf.
Strata community online
At Signature Strata we understand the essential need to obtain relevant information at a time that works for Owners Corporations and Unit Owners. Our platform enables communities to view their statements; raise maintenance requests; view important documents; communicate with their neighbours; read important notices and so much more.
Insurance & risk
A one-size fits all approach doesn’t work when insuring strata communities. At Signature Strata we use the professional services of highly qualified insurance brokers who have vastly developed skills and comprehensive understanding of insurance cover needs and related risk. It is through these brokers that we believe our clients will receive specialised advice and tailored solutions to suit their needs.
Contractors & service providers
Signature Strata will manage a comprehensive panel of experienced (and trusted) contractors and service providers for and on behalf of strata communities, ensuring they are assessed for quality of works conducted. They must hold relevant trade licences and/or permits with current certificates of insurance. We ensure the contractors are covered at all times by conducting audits annually on behalf of our clients.
Maintaining the value of a strata community’s assets, and where possible, striving to extend the life of these assets is critical. Our aim at Signature Strata is to ensure all plant and equipment are maintained and serviced on a regular basis and as per manufacturer’s recommendations. We pro-actively plan activities whilst monitoring expenditure and prioritise needs in conjunction with Owners Corporations.
The complexity of strata management often calls for comprehensive facilities management services to complement general maintenance issues and needs. At Signature Strata we can either partner with established facilities management agencies and/or providers as nominated by Owners Corporations or we can accommodate such needs directly by providing services from Point Facilities Solutions.
After hours emergency
After hours emergency services are available from 5.00pm to 9.00am Monday to Friday, and 24/7 on weekends. All non-urgent matters however we would expect should be referred to our team at Signature Strata during normal business hours for management and attention. Additional fees would apply should these services be required.
