Whittles has a written contract with each of its managed properties that sets out what we do and what makes up the charge for the services we provide. There are standard services like bookkeeping & maintaining records, issuing meeting & levy notices, handling communications as well as routine administration. Additionally, there are one-off or variable services that Whittles provides to Corporations on an 'as needs' basis, such as: meetings, non-standard building works, disputes, insurance claims, etc.
Because each building is different Whittles doesn’t include two meetings in its standard management fee. This way, you only pay for what you need. If you only have an annual general meeting you pay for 1 meeting. However, buildings that have 2 or 3 owners meetings and monthly Committee meetings, will pay more as they require these as an additional service.
Owner payments go to your Corporation (not Whittles) and are kept in its bank accounts to pay regular and one-off expenses. All payments are either budgeted or approved by the Committee. Only a small portion of your payments goes to Whittles for its management charges as agreed in the management agreement between your Corporation and Whittles.
