Allocation of Cost Reports

Large buildings with multiple strata plans can pay a lot to maintain the assets which are shared. Sometimes, they are not in line with the actual use and hence, the registered allocation of cost of the shared facilities are not fit-for-purpose. We provide an impartial assessment of that cost allocation to enable mediation between the strata plans and re-registration of the shared facilities.

What are Allocation of Cost Reports?

Large buildings with multiple strata plans maintain their shared facilities via the building management committee. The portion of funds allocated to each strata plan to maintain these facilities can come into dispute if they have been registered by means that do not take into account certain variables such as façade area, use, strata plan allocation, unit areas and the likes. An Allocation of Cost Report review the fund allocation percentages registered under the building management committee with a set of fresh eyes and a more scientific and methodical approach. This then enables the stakeholders to agree and re-register the list of shared facility cost allocations with the Land Titles Office. 

How are Allocation of Cost Reports Useful?

Allocation of Costs Reports carried out by a third party such as a quantity surveyor, allows for an independent and impartial review based on scientific methodologies. These methods take into consideration the current use and accessibility of each item so that they also align with the needs of the strata plans so that the funds are distributed to those who use each asset most. By doing so, they provide the opportunity for mediation amongst the building management committee and individual stakeholders.
