Strata schemes for Burwood and its surrounding suburbs like Burwood Heights, Croydon, Croydon Park, Enfield, and Strathfield can be complex landscapes to navigate. Unlike freestanding homes, strata complexes are governed by a unique set of laws and regulations. With multiple owners of varying personalities sharing a common space, it’s crucial to have well-implemented rules, by-laws, and regulations to ensure smooth operation.
Issues and disputes are inevitable, and that’s where specialised strata lawyers come into play. Key legislations like the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW), the Strata Schemes (Freehold Development) Act, and the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 outline the rights, responsibilities, and procedures for everyone involved in a strata scheme, from the Owners Corporation to individual owners and occupiers.
Recovery of Levies
In the initial years following the registration of a strata plan, defects like water ingress, cracks, and peeling often arise. Leveraging the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW), we can initiate proceedings to enforce statutory warranties, helping you recover the costs of rectifying these defects.
Legal Advice and Practical Solutions
Our strata lawyers are well-versed in all aspects of strata law. We provide tailored legal advice, enforce your rights through adjudication, court, or tribunal, negotiate settlements, and prepare all necessary legal documentation.
