Strata management update – March 2016

We are thrilled to announce that Blackburne was recently awarded Strata Management Business of the Year for 2015 by the Strata Community Australia (WA). We are extremely proud to receive this award in recognition of our contribution and high peer perception in the industry. It was a big night for Blackburne with 4 of our team members being finalists for Strata Manager of the Year and Blackburne taking out the award for Young Strata Manager of the Year.

Reform to Strata Titles Act

We’re extremely pleased to see that Cabinet has approved the drafting of amendments to the Strata Titles Act which will include several important areas of reform.

We’re glad to see that the amendments will provide more protection for those that own or are looking to buy a strata titled property, and will support more effective management of strata schemes. The amendments include easier dispute resolution by increasing the jurisdiction of the State Administrative Tribunal, clarification of the roles of strata companies and strata councils, more accountability for Strata Managers, provisions for electronic communication and the requirement to disclose additional information to buyers.

The amendments will also simplify staged development as well as introduce community titles and leasehold strata, which will provide more options for development and will help to support the future growth of WA.
