Reforms to the Strata Titles Act 1985 (STA) are taking shape with Landgate aiming to introduce the Strata Titles Amendment Bill to Parliament soon.  The strata reforms will result in substantial changes to the way strata disputes will be resolved among other changes

This presentation is delivered in two parts and focuses on

  • Part One presented by Sean Macfarlane
    Topic: Strata reform update – 7 areas of reform and where we are up to:

    • Expanding the jurisdiction of the State Administrative Tribunal (SAT) to resolve almost all strata disputes
    • What additional powers SAT will be granted to resolve strata disputes and
    • Case studies demonstrating how the dispute resolution reforms will work
  • Part Two presented by Mark Atkinson
    Topic: practitioner perspective on the reforms

This seminar is presented by a member Landgate’s Strata Titles Act Reform team, and an experienced practitioner, and is highly recommended for all lawyers who practice in strata titles and property law in general.
