I've been catching my strata manager telling quite a few lies regarding the operation and financials of my strata scheme.

These are mostly through conversations in person or over the phone, and there's no way I can prove to my fellow owners that she is a liar.

Can I secretly record our future conversations regarding the strata scheme in person, over the phone, and zoom meetings, and play it back or send a copy to the other owners?

Can I also play it back or send a copy to owners of other strata schemes that she manages?

Secretly record?
Circulate copies?

In NSW... without knowledge and consent of the other party,
almost certainly not.

Almost, but not quite.
