Hi, I’m John, solicitor, and reviewing your post, and may need to ask a few questions a long the way to assist you.

I kindly request that you please clarify your question?

Customer
I the new owner in our strata is planning to subdivide his block .he will be using a power conection I paid to set up so that I could have power to my new subdivision some time ago.
It was a requirement by western power be for they would give me permission to do my subdivision. Costing me over $11000
I know he would be paying this If I had not already so I need him to pay me half this amount be for I agree to him subsidising
In a strata I belong to.
Customer
I want to know if I can hold his plans up until he agrees to pay his share by not signing the request for him to subdivide
Customer
Do you understand what I want to achieve
Customer
My phone battery is getting low & I'm in the car & have no way to put on charge
Customer
I guess I will get your answer after my phone is recharge should it go out

we can chat in this box as long as you need.

Concerning your important matter about the strata subdivision, any strata subdivision requires several steps, this is approval by all unit owners in the original strata subdivision to create a new subdivision, then it must be approved by the council.

If approval is not achieved by these two steps, a subdivision cannot occur.

Thank you for reaching out today.

You have a legal right to protect your interests in this important situation.

Customer

John Melis, Expert

Every owner will be asked to vote at a general meeting or by proxy vote.

Customer
there it would appear he will not be able pull some other process on me
img

John Melis, Expert

That is correct

You are welcome, and thank you for supporting the community.

Customer
To achieve his wishes each owener or proxy will need to sign the agreement for him to move forward
img

John Melis, Expert

For this particular owner to achieve what they want to do, there has to be a general meeting, and there has to be a majority vote to allow a change to the original plan subdivision. This is very difficult to do. Then The next step is to get the approval from the local council who may also still reject it. And this is a lengthy process.

Customer
Do you think this will leave me with enough leverage to get him to pay his share of the power upgrade

John Melis, Expert

This maybe possible

Customer
