Strata Schemes

Strata schemes, while offering a unique living and ownership experience, come with their own set of complexities. Unlike freestanding homes, strata complexes operate under distinct laws. The essence of strata lies in the coexistence of multiple owners within a shared space. 

This necessitates the establishment of rules, regulations, and by-laws to ensure harmony and smooth operation within the strata complex.

Given the diverse personalities and interests of owners, disputes are inevitable. This is where the expertise of a strata lawyer becomes invaluable, both in preventing and addressing legal issues that arise.

Key legislations governing strata schemes in NSW include:

  • The Home Building Act 1989 (NSW): This act regulates the residential building industry and specific specialist work in NSW.
  • The Strata Schemes (Freehold Development) Act: It details the ownership system within a Strata Scheme, including the subdivision of lots, registration of strata plans, and management of common property.

The Strata Schemes Management Act 2015: This act outlines the rights and responsibilities of the Owners Corporation, individual owners, and occupiers. It encompasses areas like financial management, maintenance, insurance, and provides a structured dispute resolution process.

Our Services

At Contracts Specialist, we provide comprehensive strata legal services tailored to the unique needs of Goulburn and its surrounding areas. Our expertise spans a wide range of strata matters, ensuring that our clients receive the best possible advice and representation.

Recovery of Levies

Owners Corporations often face challenges in recovering levies from strata title lot owners. As per the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 (NSW), the Owners Corporation holds the right to recover any unpaid contributions. This includes not only the outstanding amount but also the accrued interest and reasonable enforcement costs.

Defect Claims

In the initial years following the registration of a strata plan, the Owners Corporation may encounter building defects such as water ingress, settlement issues, cracks, and peeling. The Home Building Act 1989 (NSW) empowers the Owners Corporation to initiate proceedings, enforcing statutory warranties to recoup the costs of rectifying these defects.
