Strata schemes for Sutherland and its surrounding suburbs can be intricate landscapes to navigate. Unlike freestanding homes, strata complexes operate under specific laws and regulations. These schemes involve multiple owners—each with their own personalities and interests—sharing a common space. This necessitates strict by-laws and rules to ensure a harmonious living environment.
Legal issues and disputes are inevitable in such settings. That’s where specialised strata lawyers come into play, offering preventive measures and solutions for arising challenges. Key legislations that govern strata schemes in NSW include the Home Building Act 1989, the Strata Schemes (Freehold Development) Act, and the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015. These laws cover everything from ownership and subdivision of lots to the responsibilities of the Owners Corporation and individual owners.
Recovery of Levies
In the initial years following the registration of a strata plan, defects like water ingress, cracks, and settlement issues often arise. Leveraging the Home Building Act 1989 (NSW), we help Owners Corporations enforce statutory warranties to recover the costs of rectifying these defects.

- Accurate legal advice tailored to your strata issue
