MCST is the short form of Management Corporation Strata Title No. XXXX. This is the description for an organisation formed to manage the matters of a condominium. The "XXXX" refers to a number that the Building Control Authority would allocate to this organisation to identify it. As an example, MCST No. 940 refers to the organisation that manages the matters pertaining to The Arcadia (Arcadia Gardens).
A MCST is normally formed when the developer reaches the end stage of a new development. The need for a management organisation is there by then. The law provides that the developer has to form a MCST within 2 months from the date of Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) issued by the Building Control Authority (BCA). Owners of a newly TOP condominium do not need to be involved in the formation of a MCST as this is the task of the developer.
Initially the MCST would be managed by the developer who will oversee all the matters of the estate. This includes the daily cleaning, repairs, pest control etc. However, upon the conclusion of the 1st AGM, the management of the estate is handed over to the owners. The owners will elect among themselves a group of volunteers who will be Management Council members. Among these Management Council members, they will elect a Chairman, a Secretary and a Treasurer.
MCSTs normally comprise of a Management Council and often, a Managing Agent. The Managing Agent is a contractor of the Management Council to handle the day to day tasks of the estate. The role of the Management Council is to create the vision, the strategies/direction for the estate and ensure the proper management of it. In most cases, a lot of the responsibilities are delegated down to the Managing Agent.
