Tip 55 – Body Corporate Managers – They’re not lawyers

While your body corporate manager is expected to be familiar with the Act and Regulation modules, they’re not lawyers.  There’s a difference between (say) asking a body corporate manager for basic information or where to find something in the legislation and (in effect) asking a body corporate manager to offer a legal opinion on an issue confronting your body corporate.  Savvy body corporate managers will refer you to real lawyers.  Watch out for the ones that don’t.
