WA strata reform
Strata is becoming clearer and fairer for the thousands of Western Australians who own, live in or want to buy strata properties.
WA has over 325,000 strata properties across residential and commercial strata schemes such as apartments, townhouses and units.
Changes to WA strata law will modernise the State’s strata framework and represent the most important updates to strata legislation in over 20 years.
The reforms will support better living options for WA’s growing population - helping government and industry to build and maintain diverse, affordable and sustainable communities, well into the future.
Legislation passed by WA Parliament in November 2018 will see our strata laws and regulations change in two phases.
Phase 1: The commencement of the amended Strata Titles Act 1985 on 1 May 2020.
This comprehensive reform will make strata better for strata owners, residents and industry professionals across Western Australia.

Phase 2: The commencement of the new Community Titles Act 2018 is still to be confirmed.
Work is underway on the regulations to accompany this new Act, prior to a commencement date being proposed.
Community titles are a new form of land title. They are expected to facilitate more complex or mixed-use subdivision and development within a shared ownership environment.
