Why reform is needed
The proposed changes 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.
WA has more than 300,000 strata properties and this number continues to grow; over half of our State’s new land subdivisions were strata titled last year.
It is also predicted that WA’s population will increase to more than five million by 2056. The new strata laws and proposed regulations are an important part of the Government’s response to this growth.
Through many years of consultation, Landgate has worked with the community and industry to understand the most common issues.
The changes reflect what our communities need from modern strata living and arrangements; updating legislation that was over 20 years old.
