There is a clear lack of awareness and understanding on the part of homebuyers in relation to strata living which, consequently, leads to several common misconceptions.
For example, their reluctance to take part in the management council. They may consider it a waste of time or they do not want to get involved as they find it troublesome as it comes with a heavy responsibility. Another common misconception among strata title owners is the belief that they shouldn't pay service charges if they are not happy with the quality of service.
