Neighbouring properties often need temporary or permanent access to a strata scheme in order to develop their land – neighoubouring land access.
The usual scenario is that the neighbour contacts the executive committee or the strata manager, offering a simple form to sign to expedite the process. The neighbour will not voluntarily make any mention of liability, indemnities, compensation or other costs.
Most types of access only require an ordinary resolution at a general meeting. However, the registration of an easement (such as drainage easements, easements for services etc.) requires a special resolution, in accordance with section 26 of the Strata Schemes (Freehold Development) Act 1973.
