You will need this registration if you intend to create, amend, consolidate or cancel a strata plan. This is part of a two-step approval process for strata plans, specifically:
- you will need to obtain a certificate of approval from the relevant council
- you will need to lodge your strata plan with the relevant state government agency.
The registration of a strata plan creates a strata scheme for the specified property. A strata scheme is a development which divides a property into lots (private property) and common property. The common property is managed by a Body Corporate, which is made up of all lot owners acting as a single body.
