STRATA MANAGEMENT REFORM
The Strata Titles Act (STA) came into inception more than 30 years ago in 1985, which makes many parts of the Act outdated given our rapid change in community living. In the past five to ten years our strata management department at Empire Estate Agents has actively registered quite a large number of additional by-laws for strata schemes that were desperately required to protect the harmonious community living required in strata. Some of these by-laws were as simple as recognising electronic notice and penalties for breach of by-laws.
By 2056, Western Australia is expected to be home to over 5.6 million people as we move to a focus on community living.
An increasing number of Perth residents are resisting large homes in suburbia and opting for higher density living close to public transport, according to the state’s land agency, Landcorp
The STA reforms are part of preparing for the increased demand for housing this will bring.
