1. If a person holds more than the total number of proxies permissible, the person cannot vote using any additional proxies. The total number of proxies that may be held by a person (other than proxies held by the person as the co-owner of a lot) voting on a resolution are as follows:
(a) if the strata scheme has 20 lots or less, one,
(b) if the strata scheme has more than 20 lots, a number that is equal to not more than 5% of the total number of lots.
2. A physical person must be named on the proxy form. Do not nominate the Chairperson, StrataManager or Ostrata as your proxy for the meeting. It is advisable that you nominate another person that can/is attending the meeting.
3. This form is ineffective unless it contains the date on which it was made and it is given to the secretary of the owner's corporation at least 24 hours before the first meeting in relation to which it is to operate (in the case of a large strata scheme – 100 lots or more) or at or before the first meeting in relation to which it is to operate (in any other case).
4. This form will be revoked by a later proxy appointment form delivered to the secretary of the owner's corporation in the manner described in the preceding paragraph.
5. This form is current from the day on which it is signed until the end of the period (if any)specified on the form or the first anniversary of that day or at the end of the second annual general meeting held after that day (whichever occurs first).
6. A provision of a contract for the sale of a lot in a strata scheme, or of any ancillary or related contract or arrangement, is void and unenforceable to the extent that it:
(a) requires the purchaser of a lot, or any other person, to cast a vote at a meeting of the owner's corporation at the direction of another person, or
(b) requires the purchaser to give a proxy at the direction of another person for the purpose of voting at a meeting of the owner's corporation (that is a person cannot rely on any such proxy to cast a vote as a proxy).
