Before you buy into a strata complex, it is very important to obtain a Pre-Purchase Strata Inspection Report – we can provide this report for strata schemes and neighbourhood and community associations.

We will arrange for an inspection of the books and records of the scheme and provide a written easy to read strata report to your solicitor.

This report will help you make an informed decision about your potential purchase. It will help to identify whether or not the strata scheme has all required books and records, current insurance cover, a history of building problems, court orders or applications pending against it, which will allow you to fully assess your intended purchase.

To order your Pre-Purchase Strata Inspection Report click here or click on one of the Pre-Purchase Strata Inspection Report links. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your needs further please contact Susan Stewart, General Manager.

Not sure if you need to obtain a report then consider the following questions:

  • Can you afford the quarterly levy payments due? Have there been any special levy amounts determined due?
  • What rules, limitations and restrictions are in place that may impact you living there?
  • Does the plan have any restrictions on allowing animals? Have any alterations to the lot been approved by the Owners Corporation for example an air conditioner or a pergola?
  • Do I know what Common Property is and how does it affect me? Are their restrictions on Common Property use that may impact me?
  • Does the plan have adequate insurance and has a recent valuation been completed to support the insured value?
  • What is the state of the plan finances and what balances exist in the accounts? Are there any pending works or unpaid invoices etc. that could result in a special levy?
  • Does the plan have sufficient funds in their sinking fund to cater for the needs of the building considering its age and state of repair? Is the sinking fund budget adequate?
  • Are there any current or proposed litigation matters, or public liability claims involving the Owners Corporation?
