The Year of Acting Reasonably

By Frank Higginson11 Dec 2015

As we power towards the finish line for 2015 (is it really 16 years since the Y2Kpanic?) it is too late for detailed newsletters and new topics. The attention spans are lagging and the ability to be irritated easily tends to escalate at this time of year. So we will keep it short and sweet – not even with a click through to access the full article.

For those that are interested our top five newsletters for the year in terms of readership metrics were:

  1. What does 'acting reasonably' mean?
  2. Another failed attempt to terminate a management rights agreement
  3. Partial assignments of management rights and the transfer fee
  4. Dealing with nuisance owners
  5. How to waste a body corporate’s money…

What does 2016 hold? If we had a wish list for strata it would include a simple legislative cure for Gallery Vie, some certainty about the ongoing lot entitlementsdiscussion (now stalled since 2012), and for everyone to act like adults when disputes arise. Unfortunately, the first two are more likely than the third.

Office closure

We officially close from 5:00pm Wednesday, 23 December 2015 and reopen from 7:30am Monday, 4 January 2016.

From all of us here at Hynes Legal, thank you to our clients and referrers for keeping us busy during 2015. We'd also like to thank our subscribers and those who provided feedback throughout the year.

We will be back in January bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready for another year in strata-land with plenty of new content for you to digest.

Until then have a great Christmas and all the best for 2016.
