Looking to buy a unit, but the body corporate seems high. It is self managed and after perusing the minutes of the last AGM the body corporate costs seem twice as high as the outgoings that I can see tabled in the minutes. Something doesn't feel right so I have requested the annual financial report so I can see where the money is going. Got a reply back from the agent saying that they won't send the financials directly and it needs to go through our conveyancer? I've never heard of this before. Normally the financials are on the back page of the minutes, or sent quickly when requested. Alarm bells are starting to ring...but maybe it's unwarranted? Anyone had similar experiences?
