Legislation throughout Australia provides for the ability to divide a property by way of granting separate titles to parcels of land, commonly referred to as lots. The individual titles that are created are referred to as strata titles. It is common practice that the individual proprietors of the strata titles will share certain facilities at the property (this referred to as “common property”) such as stairwells, driveways, gardens and amenities. These facilities do not, of themselves form part of an individual Strata Title.
In Western Australia, strata titles are governed by the Strata Titles Act 1985 (WA), though various property rights are also provided for under the Property Law Act 1969 (WA).
