Trusted service providers for Strata Properties
It is essential that we partner with professional and reliable service providers. Since 1986, we have been working closely with a large number of suppliers to assist in the maintenance and upkeep of Strata properties and common grounds.
At all times, ESM’s supplier network must comply with legislation which, among other things, includes obligation under Work Health and Safety (WHS), contractor safety compliance, licenses, trade certification, Work-cover, public liability and professional indemnity insurance and trade monitors compliancy certificate.
The combination of these ensures that a supplier is compliant as per the Strata Titles legislation. As part of our Strata Management service, ESM will coordinate the management of any maintenance or other services with suppliers on behalf of the strata company.
We do not receive commissions or other commercial benefits from contractors engaged on behalf of a scheme.
Working with ESM and the Strata Companies we manage:
To become an approved supplier with ESM, you will need to ensure you hold the relevant licences and insurances to guarantee compliance with the Strata Titles act. Once approved, you will become part of our supplier network that we call on to quote on work that is requested by the Strata Companies we manage.
As part of our supplier compliance process, you will be contacted once a year to update/confirm your details in our system including updated copies of the relevant licences and insurances you hold.
