Strata schemes at City of Canterbury Bankstown and its surrounding areas present unique challenges. Unlike freestanding homes, strata complexes involve multiple owners with diverse personalities sharing a common space. This necessitates clear rules, regulations, and by-laws to ensure harmony and smooth operation. Given the intricacies, legal issues and disputes can arise. Strata lawyers play a crucial role in preventing and managing these issues. Key legislations governing strata in NSW include the Home Building Act 1989, which regulates residential building, and the Strata Schemes (Freehold Development) Act, detailing ownership within a Strata Scheme. Additionally, the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 outlines the rights, responsibilities, and procedures for all stakeholders in a Strata Scheme.
Recovery of Levies
Post the registration of a strata plan, defects like water ingress, cracks, and settlement often emerge. Our expertise in the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW) empowers us to initiate proceedings, enforcing statutory warranties, and aiding Owners Corporations in recovering rectification costs for such defects.
Legal Advice and Practical Solutions
Our seasoned strata lawyers provide precise legal advice, enforce rights through adjudication, courts, and tribunals, adeptly negotiate settlements, and meticulously prepare all requisite legal documentation.
