North Sydney, Australia
Northern Sydney is divided into distinctive regions such as the North Shore, Northern Beaches and Forest District.

Strata Schemes

Strata schemes introduce a unique form of property ownership, distinct from traditional freestanding homes. With multiple owners, each bringing their individual personalities and preferences, strata complexes can be intricate. This shared living space necessitates the establishment and adherence to specific rules, regulations, and by-laws to ensure harmony and smooth operation within the complex.

Given this complexity, disputes and issues are bound to emerge. This is where the expertise of a strata lawyer becomes invaluable. They are equipped to prevent and adeptly manage any legal challenges that may arise within strata schemes.

Key legislations governing strata schemes in NSW include:

  • The Home Building Act 1989 (NSW): This act oversees the residential building sector and specific specialist tasks in NSW.
  • Strata Schemes (Freehold Development) Act: This legislation delineates the ownership system within a Strata Scheme, detailing the subdivision of lots, registration of strata plans, and management of common property.
  • Strata Schemes Management Act 2015: This act outlines the rights and duties of the Owners Corporation, individual owners, and residents. It encompasses financial management, maintenance, insurance, and a structured dispute resolution process.

Our Services

Navigating the intricacies of strata law requires a blend of expertise and practicality. At Contracts Specialist, we offer a comprehensive suite of services tailored to address the unique challenges of strata schemes for North Sydney and its surrounding suburbs.

Recovery of Levies

A common challenge faced by many Owners Corporations is the recovery of levies from strata title lot owners. As stipulated by the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 (NSW), the Owners Corporation holds the right to recover any outstanding contributions. This includes the accrued interest and any reasonable enforcement costs.

Defect Claims

Post the registration of a strata plan, the initial years often unveil building defects like water ingress, settlement issues, cracks, and peeling. Leveraging the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW), the Owners Corporation can initiate proceedings to enforce statutory warranties, aiming to recover the costs associated with rectifying these defects.

  • Tailored legal advice for your specific strata concerns.
