TIME & MOTION, STEP BY STEP BMCS REPORTS
The core of each report is the schedule of specific manager/caretaker duties and responsibilities (including frequency of performance) and the calculation of our recommended suitable remuneration for those duties and responsibilities.
"We heard of BMCS through a friend who recommended their services to do a remuneration review to include a new schedule of duties as the existing was very generic in nature and well out of date. The process and methodology that Barry and his team used was extremely thorough and accurate to determine the new remuneration. After negotiations with the Body Corporate a fair result that both parties where happy with was adopted, this included the new schedule of duties provided by Barry and his team. With a new contract in place reflecting the changes this has given us more confidence with clarity and stability moving forward and for the future of the Management Rights. A big Thank you to Barry and team for all your help and expertise."Iain and Fiona ColmoreResident Managers, Central Plaza Port Douglas
"For my clients, I choose to engage Barry's services as my legal research indicates that his methodology and reports are accepted widely by the Courts and Tribunals around Australia. In person, Barry is methodical, knowledgeable and disciplined in his approach. His reports are easy to understand and above all else, accurate and precise. Barry is peerless in his profession."Tom BaconCEO & Principal STL Strata Title Lawyers
"I have utilised the services of Barry Turner and BMCS over many years, primarily in relation to the preparation of detailed schedules of duties and carrying out caretaking agreement remuneration reviews. I have always found Barry’s work to be of an exceptional standard. He takes to time to familiarise himself with the particular building so as to be able to produce a tailor-made schedule of duties for the building and to accurately determine the time taken to perform those duties. He does not adopt the one size fits all generic approach that others do. Barry’s understanding and knowledge of the management rights industry are second to none and his credibility and professionalism are of the highest standard. Not surprisingly, his reports have been well received by QCAT and specialist adjudicators of the Office of the Commissioner for Body Corporate and Community Management. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Barry and BMCS to anyone seeking assistance in the unique industry of management rights."John MahoneyPartner, Mahoneys Law Firm
"Barry Turner of BMCS has been a favoured industry partner of Diverse FMX since 2006. In fact, Diverse FMX would not recommend any other consultant in Australia when it comes to factual, justifiable, accurate, fair and relevant advice relating to the duties and remuneration schedules for caretakers under Management Rights agreements. The system of site-specific determination developed over the years by BMCS is second-to-none in the industry and clients may be fully assured that they are receiving the best information available when they engage Barry and his team. Reports created by BMCS result from painstaking investigations, research and consultation and are so comprehensively detailed as to leave the reader in no doubt of the unique skill and expertise they have just benefited from. It is our pleasure to wholeheartedly recommend Barry Turner and BMCS to any potential client seeking to align themselves with the highest level of capability in this evolving niche industry."Lynda KypriadakisManaging Director of Diverse FMX Pty Ltd
