Strata is now 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 have modernise the State’s strata framework and represent the most important updates to strata legislation in over 20 years.

The reforms 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.

There are two phases of strata reform in Western Australia which relate to legislation passed by the WA Parliament in November 2018. For details on each area of reform, please follow the links below.

Phase 1: The commencement of the amended Strata Titles Act 1985

Since 1 May 2020, WA’s amended strata titles law has been in effect - making strata better for strata owners, residents and industry professionals across Western Australia.

Phase 2: The commencement of the new Community Titles Act 2018

On 30 June 2021, the Community Titles Act 2018 came into effect, generating exciting new possibilities for future mixed-use developments in Western Australia.

Community titles enable the creation of community schemes and provide an important new land tenure option to WA’s property sector.
