In a recent decision, NCAT has confirmed that it is business as usual and that appeals against decisions of Strata Adjudicators will continue to be dealt with by NCAT in the same manner, even though strata adjudications have been abolished under the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015.
The Strata Schemes Management Act 1996 (old Act) allowed Strata Adjudicators to make orders to resolve strata disputes. On 30 November 2016, the old Act was repealed and replaced by the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 (new Act). The new Act abolished strata adjudications.
However, there were still strata adjudications pending at the time the old Act was repealed and decisions of Strata Adjudicators under the old Act continued to be made up until recently. This created uncertainty as to whether or not a party dissatisfied with a decision made by an Adjudicator could appeal against the decision after 30 November 2016.
