What is strata title?

Strata Schemes & Strata Title Management

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.

Security & Privacy

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:

  • Membership - approve or deny membership as people request to join
  • The visibility of the page itself - set who can see the page even exists
  • Page permissions – set privacy & access for each aspect of the page functionality

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:

  1. Make all committee members ‘page admins’
  2. Set permission for ‘add document’ to ‘admin only’
  3. Set ‘view documents’ to ‘members only’

Page members & admins alone would see the documents, but only admins can add new documents.
