The Strata Titles Amendment Act 2018 (WA) is now in effect

The WA Parliament has now passed a number of amendments to the Strata Titles Act 1985 to modernise how strata operates in Western Australia. The amended Act has now taken effect in Western Australia (as of 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.

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 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.
