Strata Title Overhaul a Step Closer

Wednesday, 14th October 2015

Almost there!

Once-in-a-generation reforms to the state's strata title laws are a step closer to day.

The Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation, Victor Dominello introduced two bills into Parliament containing more than 90 changes to the existing laws.

 

 

 

 

Key changes include:

  • Providing a flexible and fair mechanism for collective sale and renewal;
  • Making it easier for owners to complete cosmetic and minor renovations;
  • Modernising rules to help prevent proxy farming;
  • Introducing a defects bond to fix building defects early in new developments;
  • New provisions addressing the perennial issues of parking, pets and smoke drift.

"The over-riding objective is to modernise our strata laws to better reflect the way people live and work in 2015 and beyond," Mr Dominello said.

"The last major amendments to strata law happened 20 years ago - the face of our state and major cities has changed dramatically since then.

Today's strata landscape included city high rises, townhouses, dual occupancies, offices, retirement villages, mixed use and tourism.

Currently over two million people, including 25 per cent of Greater Sydney's population, live or work in more than 75,000 strata schemes across NSW.

"By 2040, half of all Sydneysiders will be living or working in strata.  It is important that our laws reflect current needs and cater for future demands," Mr Dominello said.

NSW was the first state in Australia to introduce strata title laws in 1961, with the legislation designed to accommodate small, self-managed walk-up blocks of flats.

Debate on the Strata Scheme Management Bill and Strata Scheme Development Bill will take place in NSW Parliament over the next fortnight.

The reforms follow comprehensive community consultation, with over 3,000 individual submissions received.  Find out more about the reforms at www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au
