For all owners mutual benefit, we have to be actively involved in our estate management. Our objectives are: 1) Cost control; 2) Continous improvement of the quality of service.

On Cost Control, one of the major expenses is M.R. which is currently charged by MTR at 8% of total expediture. This is a complete rip-off by the developer. The M.R.% is stated in the DMC. If nobody challege the % M.R. they charged, it will be continuously transferred to MTR's account. However, most IOs now change this bad habit by paying the Manager a lump sum fee equivalent to approximately 2% of expediture. This is a tremedous saving to owners and at the same time correct the bad habit of over-spending by the Manager, because according to the old rule, they will be paid more by spending more.

HOWEVER, ONLY THE I.O. CAN HAVE THE LEGAL RIGHT TO TERMINATE THE FIRST MANAGER ASSIGNED BY THE DMC. I may be wrong if the DMC for Festival City is written in another way. We may need to refer to the BMO in case there is any conflict between the 2 documents.

On Improvement of Quality of Service, only the person(s) or an entity with the power of hire and fire will have the ultimate authority to tell the management to do the right things. The management staff will only act passively if they are not subject to pressure by the IO.

Good communication bewteen the IO and the top management of the estate is a MUST for continously improvement of the quality of service. We need a good Manager and will pay them a reasonable and comparable rate.

If WE want to accomplish our objectives, please consider and act at the right time to form our IO. THIS IS A MUST BUT A VERY HARD TASK to accomplish - MISSION IMPOSSIBLE! CHEERS!

OUR policy should be: work co-operative with MTR and in return, we expect the same from MTR.

We should be united together to gain "representation of the owners". Else, we will have no strength to negotiate with MTR.

We should actively involve in OC as a first step to excert pressure on the Manager in an official manner. Even though the OC is purely an advisory body with no real authority, at least they have to listen and document our requests.

Finally, we need to develop a plan how to obtain enough owner shares to call the first Onwers Meeting in the hope of establish an IO. According to BMO, the developer must call an AGM within 18 months (I am not sure on the exactly months) Edited on 15/11: Sorry this requirement is not specified in BMO, but may appear in some DMC ONLY. However, the developer normally will not be very helpful in encouraging owners to attend. Normally, the first meeting cannot be called with enough forum. But, they have to do it again in another 12 months (or so). The success of forming an IO is very much depending on how many die-hard owners want to participate. Let's keep our fingers crossed, but the chance of success is still slim. This is what I have experienced in another medium size estate, where we finally dismissed the developer and became the boss of our own. BUT, IT'S A TOUGH BATTLE.

   Ching, as long as the owners are work together and focus on the key area.  We should be strong enough to get what we want.  Will you join the upcoming event on 16th?

Yes, I will. But, the meeting agenda is only focussed on security issues. I am interested to know how the thief got into the units - through the door or windows. Will I see you tmr?
