Strata schemes at Muswellbrook and its neighbouring suburbs like Kiama Downs, Gerringong, Jamberoo, Kiama Heights, and Minnamurra, present a unique living arrangement where multiple owners co-exist in a shared space. This communal living necessitates well-defined rules, regulations, and by-laws to ensure a harmonious co-existence. However, disputes and issues are inevitable in such settings, making the role of a strata lawyer indispensable.
Key legislations governing strata schemes include the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW), which oversees the residential building industry and certain specialist work in NSW. The Strata Schemes (Freehold Development) Act delineates the system of ownership within a Strata Scheme, while the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 outlines the rights, responsibilities, and procedural guidelines for the Owners Corporation, individual owners, and occupiers within the Strata Scheme. Understanding and navigating these laws require a proficient strata lawyer to prevent, manage, and resolve legal issues efficiently.
Recovery of Levies
Post-registration of a strata plan, defects like water ingress, cracks, or settlement issues often emerge. The Home Building Act 1989 (NSW) empowers the Owners Corporation to enforce statutory warranties to recover rectification costs. Our adept handling of defect claims can guide you through this process, alleviating the stress associated with building defects.
