Strata Schemes: Navigating Complexity with Expertise
In the world of strata living, complexities abound. Multiple owners, each with their unique personalities, coexist in shared spaces, making it imperative to establish and uphold rules, regulations, and by-laws for smooth operation. Strata schemes, distinct from freestanding homes, come with their set of laws and intricacies.
Our Strata Lawyer team for Prestons understands the intricacies of strata schemes like no other. We specialise in efficiently preventing and managing legal issues that may arise within these shared spaces.
Key legislations governing strata schemes include:
Home Building Act 1989 (NSW): This law regulates the residential building industry and specialised work in NSW, ensuring quality and safety in construction.
Strata Schemes (Freehold Development) Act: This act outlines the system of ownership within a Strata Scheme, defining exclusive ownership of individual lots and rights over common property areas. It covers aspects like lot subdivision, strata plan registration, and common property management.
Strata Schemes Management Act 2015: This legislation delineates the rights and responsibilities of the Owners Corporation, individual owners, and occupiers within a Strata Scheme. It addresses key areas such as meetings, executive committees, financial management, maintenance, insurance, and dispute resolution.
Our expertise in strata law empowers us to guide you through the intricate web of regulations, ensuring the harmony and legality of strata living for Prestons and its surrounding suburbs.
