New Bill to Implement Covid Measures Permanently

Did you know that a new Bill Is currently before the NSW Parliament to permanently implement COVID-19 measures for the strata industry?

 In the last 24 months, temporary reforms were made to the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 and the Community Land Management Act 2021 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 and Other Legislation Amendment (Regulatory Reforms) Bill 2022 proposes to make those reforms permanent.

The reforms include:

The New Reforms

The reforms include allowing:

    • strata owners corporations, strata committees and community associations, to meet and vote electronically without passing a resolution to do so;
    • owners corporations and community associations to validly execute documents by affixing the common seal electronically or by not affixing the seal at all; and
    • service of a document on an owner or occupier of a lot to be by email to an address nominated by the owner or occupier for the service of documents.
