Strata Law 

The strata title legislation allows the division of an ordinary building block so that several titles can issue for what would otherwise be a single block.

Under the strata legislation it is possible to divide a block horizontally as well as vertically and thus give separate titles for individual flats in a  multi-story development. In Tasmania ‘villa units’ are common. These strata developments often take advantage of individual gardens, with a shared driveway over common property.

The strata title will have a site plan which will specify private areas of each lot and the common property.

Strata title legislation provides more options for development of your property. If your are looking into a strata development for your property, Teirney Law can assist.

Living in a property with a strata title comes with responsibilities. Navigating the requirements in relation to the body corporate, insurance requirements, by-laws and disputes with other unit owners can be complex. Tierney Law can assist.
