welcome to a new era in strata

Strata laws in NSW have been modernised to suit the way we live, today and beyond. Getting renovations approved is now simpler and there are online options for meetings and voting. Your strata community will need to review its rules (called by-laws) and consider any updates, such as the decision to allow pets and on what terms. There are new model by-laws to help with this process.

Whether you own, manage or live in a strata property, find out how else the new laws affect you.
