Strata schemes from Mudgee and its neighbouring suburbs like Gulgong, Kandos, and Rylstone can be intricate landscapes of legalities and communal living. Unlike freestanding homes, strata complexes operate under specific laws and by-laws to ensure a harmonious environment. With multiple owners of varying personalities sharing common spaces, it’s inevitable that disputes and issues arise.
Key legislations governing strata schemes include the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW), which regulates residential building and specialist work. The Strata Schemes (Freehold Development) Act outlines ownership within a strata scheme, while the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 defines the rights and responsibilities of the Owners Corporation and individual owners. Our expertise in these laws ensures you’re well-equipped to navigate any strata-related challenges.
Recovery of Levies
In the initial years following a strata plan’s registration, defects like water ingress, cracks, and settlement issues often arise. Leveraging the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW), we help Owners Corporations initiate proceedings to enforce statutory warranties and recover the costs of rectifying such defects.
