City Briefing 48 - Strata Title
In 2015 the Strata Schemes Management Act and Strata Schemes Development Act were passed. About 90 changes have been made to existing laws, tackling matters such as overcrowding, pet-friendliness and smoke-drift from tobacco and barbecue use. With more than two million people already living and working in strata property, the need to overhaul the State’s 40-year strata title laws is beyond dispute. However, reform has not proceeded without controversy, a key issue being the reduction from 100 to 75 per cent of the holders needed to support a renewal or redevelopment plan. It is expected to enable ageing, low-density apartment buildings to be redeveloped for more efficient housing and urban renewal.
