Strata title is a form of property ownership devised for higher-density communal living in unit blocks, apartment buildings, villa and townhouse complexes. It’s actually a great Australian invention that was first introduced in New South Wales in 1961 as an alternative to company title (which had previously been the only way to divide legal ownership of apartment blocks).
Strata title (also known as ‘community title’, and ‘unit title’ in some states) is now widespread across NSW, QLD, VIC, WA, TAS, SA, ACT and NT. These days it’s the most common way for individuals to legally own units within apartment blocks.
In Strata Title Schemes, the individual lot owners have legal title to their personal living spaces such as apartments and garages. The scheme’s ‘Body Corporate’ (or ‘Owner’s Corporation’) is responsible for common areas on the property such as stairwells, foyers, roofs, gardens and so on.
Strata living is a great way to share resources and access property ownership, but such a communal approach inevitably presents challenges. Some of the most common problems faced by lot owners, body corporate committees, and strata managers include:
We’ve created Strata Pages to help solve many of these problems & take the stress out of strata! In an effort to help as many strata schemes as possible, we’re making Strata Pages freely available as ‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS).
That is, rather than sell the software for you to purchase & install, we’ve made it part of the Housenet site. We host it centrally on our secure servers at Bulletproof in Sydney, so you can access Strata Pages immediately without any set-up or infrastructure costs.
Join Housenet to get started, and create your strata page in minutes.
Both self-managed body corporates and professional strata managers find great value in Strata Pages.

Housenet has embedded powerful privacy tools into Strata Pages to enable maximum security for your strata community. As a ‘page owner’ or ‘admin’ you have full control over:
Each page permission such ‘view documents’ or ‘create event’ has three levels to choose from:
|Admins||Only the admins of the page|
|Members Only||All members of the page, including admins|
|Everyone||Everyone on Housenet, including site guests|
For example, let’s say that you want ONLY committee members to add documents to the page for members to subsequently view & share. These are the steps to take:
Page members & admins alone would see the documents, but only admins can add new documents.
