Amended Strata Titles Act 1985 to commence 1 May 2020

By April 17, 2020April 30th, 2020No Comments

The WA Parliament passed a number of amendments to the Strata Titles Act 1985 to modernise how strata operates in Western Australia. The amended Act will take effect in Western Australia on the 1st of May 2020.

All strata properties registered as Strata Titles at Landgate are subject to the Strata Titles Act 1985 (the Act) and will all be subject to a number of changes intended to deliver a better strata framework for the future.

This includes:

  • Better buyer information
  • Efficient dispute resolution
  • Improvements to strata management
  • A fairer process for scheme termination
  • Leasehold strata
  • Development, subdivision and planning changes

Here at ESM Strata, we have a dedicated Education team and Strata Titles Act Amendments Team who have worked hard to stay at the forefront of the changes. We have included an overview of the major changes on our website and on our dedicated knowledgebase support portal.
