Strata Titles Amendment Act 2018: Strata Reforms are coming

There are some exciting changes coming to Strata in the coming year! The Strata Titles Amendment Act was passed in parliament last year and the Regulations have been drafted, distributed for public comment will soon come into effect.

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 changes when the Strata Titles Amendment Act 2018 comes into operation.

Here at ESM Strata, we have a dedicated Education team and Strata Titles Act Amendments Team who are working hard to stay at the forefront of the changes. We will be including some of the major changes below and will be bringing up to date information to all of our customers and the wider strata community. To stay up to date, you can follow us on LinkedIn and Facebook.
