Strata Schemes

Strata schemes, especially in bustling areas like Northern Beaches and its surrounding suburbs, present unique challenges. Unlike freestanding homes, strata complexes operate under distinct laws, making them inherently intricate. With multiple owners, each bringing their individual personalities into a shared space, it’s imperative to have clear rules, regulations, and by-laws. These guidelines ensure harmony and smooth operations within the strata complex.

However, with such a diverse mix, disputes are almost inevitable. This is where the expertise of a strata lawyer becomes invaluable. They not only assist in preventing potential legal issues but also adeptly manage any that arise.

Key legislations governing strata schemes include:

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

Our Services

In the vibrant Northern Beaches and its surrounding suburbs, strata matters can be multifaceted. Our services encompass a wide range of strata issues, from contract formulation to the enforcement of legal rights.

Recovery of Levies

A common challenge for many Owners Corporations is the recovery of levies from strata title lot owners. As per the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 (NSW), the Owners Corporation holds the right to reclaim any unpaid contributions. This recovery can include interest and the reasonable enforcement costs.

Defect Claims

Post the registration of a strata plan and the subsequent sale of lots by a developer, the Owners Corporation often encounters building defects. Issues can range from water ingress and cracking to peeling and settlement. The Home Building Act 1989 (NSW) empowers the Owners Corporation to initiate proceedings, leveraging statutory warranties to recoup the costs of rectifying such defects.
