Urgent notice ordinary resolution

By Murray Bennett on Sun, 23 Dec 2018 at 02:29

Before the changes to the legislation, a notice period of 14 days was allowed for a general meeting, except for meetings at which a unanimous or special resolution was to be taken which required 30 days’ notice.
Is this still the case or has it changed with the new legislation? The majority of owners have indicated they require separate water meters to be installed [they will not be pre-paid meters]
Any advice will be appreciated.

I received an answer from another source - to quote:

Hi Murray
See PMR 29(3)(a) with regard to the requirements for installing separate (not pre-paid) water meters. This requires only an ordinary resolution of members of the body corporate. PMR 15(1) and (7) set out the notice requirements for special general meetings which do not involve the passing of special or unanimous resolutions. Normally 14 days’ notice is required, but the trustees can call an ordinary general meeting on 7 days’ notice if they consider the matter to be sufficiently urgent. The notice of the expedited meeting must set out the reasons for the urgency.
General meetings at which special or unanimous resolutions are to be taken still require 30 days’ notice, as previously.
I hope this helps.
