Frequently Asked Question
Our goal is simple, to make things that people care about. We were founded on this principle and we will always be committed to it.
What is Strata?
A strata scheme is a building or a collection of buildings, where individuals each own a small portion (eg. an apartment or townhouse) but where there is common property (eg. external walls, windows, roof, driveways, foyers, fences, lawns and gardens) which every owner shares ownership over.
What is Strata Title?
The original concept of strata title was to allow people to own their flats in multi-level buildings. It is a means by which a person can buy and own property; which might be a substantial distance above ground level. Before strata title, the most common way of buying into a high rise building was to buy shares in the company which owned the building thus giving a right to occupy one of more of the flats. This is commonly called ‘company title’.

What is Common Property (in a Strata Scheme)?
Common property is that part of a Strata Scheme that is owned by everybody, not any one individual. Technically it is defined as “so much of a parcel as from time to time is not comprised in any lot.” The ‘parcel’ is the land (i.e. the lots and common property combined) on which the strata scheme is based. It therefore follows that anything that is not part of a lot is part of the common property. The strata plan (together with any strata plan of subdivision or strata plan of consolidation) is an essential tool to identify the common property.
What are 'Unit Entitlements' and what are they used for?
Every strata plan contains a list of the lots in the strata scheme and a corresponding allocation of a ‘unit entitlement’. The unit entitlement is a whole number and the total of the unit entitlements on the plan is called the ‘aggregate unit entitlement’. The unit entitlement is used to determine the lot owner’s;
- Share in the common property
- Voting rights when the voting is conducted by means of a poll.
- Right to share in distributions of surplus monies in the owners corporation’s administrative or sinking fund.
- Right to share in compensation monies paid by any public authority resuming the whole or part of the common property.
- Proportion of maintenance levies; and
- Obligation to contribute to repair and maintenance of common property under a joint exclusive use by-law.
