We provide practical legal advice on strata title development, conversions, acquisitions, by-laws, and dispute resolution to ensure our clients are given the means necessary to navigate this nuanced area of law.
SWS Lawyers acts for lot owners, owners’ corporations and strata managers on a range of strata related matters. From converting existing property to strata title, developing a new strata property, dissolving a strata scheme, and drafting and reviewing by-laws (including amendments to existing by-laws), we advise on the full range of strata issues.
In the area of strata development and conversions, we are experienced in advising on the factors that need to be considered when deciding how to structure a mixed-use scheme, obtaining consent, and addressing the concerns of existing tenants. We work closely with strata managers and surveyors to ensure the development or conversion proceeds smoothly.
We assist lot owners, owners’ corporations, and strata managers with drafting by-laws to address certain matters and assist with the administration of the strata scheme. In addition, we review and provide advice on proposed or existing by-laws to assist parties in resolving strata-related issues. Unfortunately, strata schemes can experience difficulties with lot owners, and we are well versed in acting enforcement actions involving a breach of by-laws.
Our lawyers are also experienced in strata disputes. We have advised on mediation and litigation between owners as well as disputes between an owners’ corporation and developer. We act for lot owners, owners’ corporations and strata managers in NSW Civil & Administrative Tribunal proceedings.
