Submissions called for on Strata Law consultation
The New South Wales Government has commenced a comprehensive review into NSW strata and community title laws and has flagged that significant changes could be made to the existing legislation.
"The operation of current strata laws and their complexity is an issue that residents contact my office to discuss.
"The consultation and review of strata laws started by the O'Farrell Government hopes to consider the concerns expressed by residents and will determine where a change to the law is warranted.
"I am pleased that the reform agenda of the Liberal-National NSW Government is continuing to target areas causing so much frustration in the community for review.
"Individuals and businesses have an opportunity to raise their opinions, share their experiences and suggest possible solutions with regards to our strata laws. This includes owners, tenants, strata agents, developers, surveyors, valuers, real estate agents, lawyers and academics.
"The current consultation session ends on 29 February 2012 and the Government will use the information gathered as the basis for the review.
"I encourage residents with any issues concerning strata management to share their experience and opinions through the website and to help inform the Government's reform agenda," Ms Upton said.
