Welcome to Best Practice: Strata Titles

Strata living often brings together people of diverse interests and backgrounds. The Strata Titles Act has been designed to minimise the risk of disputes by setting out some clear rules on who owns what (boundaries), maintenance responsibilities, dispute resolution, insurance and meetings.

The success of this increasingly common form of tenure and style of community living depends on communication, harmony and the fairness of its operation. Compliance with the law is fundamental to fairness and accountability. Creating and maintaining harmony within bodies corporate can only be achieved through a common understanding of legal rights and obligations by owners, residents and body corporate managers.
