Frequently Asked Questions

What’s Involved in Strata Compliance & Legislation?

In the world of Strata, there are an abundance of compliance issues faced by body corporates and property owners. As legislation continues to adapt and change over time, working with a Strata management company like Strata Data means relying on a team of experts to oversee all compliance and legislation requirements you may encounter.

As your Strata compliance experts, we work across a range of solutions for owners and occupiers. Strata compliance and legislation management means providing guidance across fire safety, work health and safety, insurance valuations, sinking fund forecasts and all other legislation that impacts Strata and body corporate. 

What Is Strata Management?

Strata management is the management of both the day-to-day concerns and long-term operation of a shared property by a company employed by the body corporate. In theory, the body corporate could manage its own property, but most opt to employ an expert Strata manager who will save the owners time, money, and stress.

Your Strata management provider will take care of everything from maintenance of common property and facilities, to handling disputes between owners and other parties, and managing the body corporate’s finances.

A Strata manager will also provide expertise for a variety of other concerns faced by Strata properties, including experience and knowledge in the area of Strata compliance and legislation management.

What Is Body Corporate?

A body corporate refers to a body of owners that manage the common property of a residential, commercial, industrial, or mixed-use property. The common areas of the property are those that are not on the title of any one particular owner and include stairs, paths, elevators, lobbies, pools, driveways, common garden areas or any other facilities set up for use by owners and occupiers. The body corporate’s sole purpose is to successfully manage these areas.

Is There a Difference Between Body Corporate, Community Title, and Strata Title?

Often used interchangeably, the terms Strata Title, Community Title, and Body Corporate all refer to the form of ownership governing a certain community or apartment building. This type of ownership was devised specifically to help govern townhouses, units, land-divisions and more recently multi-level apartment blocks that have potentially thousands of owners living in close quarters.

The confusion around whether to use the term Body Corporate, Community Title, or Strata Title is related to changes in legislation. In South Australia, any building built before 1996 is on a Strata Title and anything built after that year is on a Community Title.

What Do Strata Levies Pay For?

Strata levies, also known as quarterly payments, pay for the maintenance and running costs associated with common property including cleaning, insurance, utilities, landscaping, and specialist Strata management services, including Strata compliance management.

Strata levies for individual owners are normally calculated as a percentage calculated according to the ‘lot entitlement’ set out in the strata or community plan.  The lot entitlement is the portion, or ratio, of the unimproved value of a lot as against the sum of the unimproved values of all the lots.

What Happens If There Is a Dispute Between Members of the Body Corporate?

If there is a dispute between members of the body corporate, then your Strata management company will be able to advise the best way forward. At Strata Data, our team of Strata experts are locals to the area of Adelaide; so, they have a solid understating of local State legislation and can provide sound advice to resolve all issues in a timely fashion.
