Strata schemes for Parkes and its surrounding suburbs present a unique set of legal intricacies. Unlike freestanding homes, strata complexes are governed by a distinct set of laws due to the communal living setup, where multiple owners with diverse personalities share common spaces. This necessitates well-defined rules, regulations, and by-laws to ensure smooth operation of the strata complex.
Legal issues and disputes are inevitable in such settings. Hence, a Strata lawyer is instrumental in both preventing and managing these legal hurdles. Key legislations governing strata schemes include:
- The Home Building Act 1989 (NSW), regulating the residential building industry and certain specialist work in NSW.
- The Strata Schemes (Freehold Development) Act, delineating the system of ownership within a Strata Scheme, detailing subdivision of lots, registration of strata plans, and management of common property.
- The Strata Schemes Management Act 2015, outlining the rights and responsibilities of the Owners Corporation, individual owners, and occupiers, covering aspects like financial management, maintenance, insurance, and dispute resolution procedures.
These legislations form the legal backbone ensuring orderly and harmonious coexistence within strata schemes for Parkes and nearby areas.
Recovery of Levies
In the initial years post the registration of a strata plan, defects such as water ingress, cracks, and settlement often surface. Leveraging the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW), we aid the Owners Corporation in enforcing statutory warranties to recover the costs of rectifying such defective work, ensuring a safe and comfortable living environment.
