We’re here to help
Our office hours are between 9 am and 5 pm Monday to Friday.
For after-hours emergency repairs and maintenance relating to the common property please contact Ara Building Services and advise your Strata Manager on the next business day.
Ara Building Services will be able to help you determine what the problem may be and whether an emergency tradesman is required.
Please use these emergency contacts only if your building does not have a Building Manager.
Your building may have its own preferred list of emergency and regular trades. You should consult with your Strata Manager to check if this is the case.
If you call the after-hours contact, you agree to pay the cost of the callout should your situation not be an after-hours emergency or is not related to common property.
HOW TO CHANGE STRATA MANAGERS
3 Steps to Transition to Strata Management Services NSW
STEP 1: CLARIFICATION & QUOTE

We will arrange this for you.

Once we receive the minutes and the signed Strata Management Agreement, we will provide the outgoing agent with all necessary paperwork and commence the hand-over and transition of your records to our office.
For a confidential and obligation free quote, contact us or request a quote, and we will contact you within the next business day to discuss your requirements.
“Strata Management Services NSW recently took over the strata management of our Strata Scheme. They effected a seamless transition for us from our previous Strata Manager, have provided advice and guidelines to assist the Strata Committee to carry out its duties more transparently and effectively and have acted immediately and supportively in response to any requests or directions from the Committee.”
Strata Committee – Redfern, NSW
“Thank you so much for all of your assistance and everything you have done to assist a bunch of people who had absolutely no idea whatsoever how to run strata. Without your efforts and advice, our complex would have been a horror to manage and would not be in as good a shape today as it is. if I am ever asked if I know of any “top-class strata manger” I will certainly pass on your details.
Thanks once again!”
Strata Committee Member – Sylvania, NSW
“We have been using Strata Management Services for years and we've enjoyed a great working relationship with them. The staff has a professional and friendly manner with all the owners and tenants. Their legal knowledge and management advice makes it easy to keep our building running like clockwork. They're always quick to respond to any big problems down to the smallest queries with an open mind and line of communication.”
Strata Committee Secretary – Bellevue Hill, NSW
“Many of us were chatting after the meeting and we all agreed that you are the best strata manager we have ever had.”
Strata Committee Treasurer – North Sydney, NSW
