HOT OFF THE PRESS!
NCAT has recently released new application forms for strata disputes.
The new forms introduce some changes to the way NCAT will handle strata applications.
The key changes are as follows:
- When lodging an application, an owners corporation must provide evidence that the application has been authorised by a meeting of the strata committee or a meeting of the owners corporation;
- If all lot owners are affected by the orders that are sought, the owners corporation will need to notify all lot owners about the application and any affected lot owners will be given an opportunity to be joined as a party to the application.
NCAT has also shortened the length of the strata application forms and moved much of the information previously included in those forms into a NCAT Fact Sheet: Strata Schemes.
