Strata schemes for Port Macquarie and its surrounding areas like Bonny Hills, Lake Cathie, and Wauchope can be complex landscapes to navigate. Unlike freestanding homes, strata complexes operate under specific laws and regulations. These schemes involve multiple owners with diverse personalities sharing common spaces, making it crucial to have well-implemented rules, by-laws, and regulations for smooth operation.
Key legislations that govern strata schemes include:
- The Home Building Act 1989 (NSW): Regulates residential building and specialist work in NSW.
- Strata Schemes (Freehold Development) Act: Details ownership within a Strata Scheme, including lot subdivision and common property management.
Strata Schemes Management Act 2015: Outlines the rights and responsibilities of the Owners Corporation and individual owners, covering financial management, maintenance, insurance, and dispute resolution.
Recovery of Levies
Issues like water ingress, cracks, and settlement often arise in the early years of a strata plan. Leveraging the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW), we help Owners Corporations enforce statutory warranties to recover the costs of rectifying such defects.
