Has your strata plan updated its address for service?

Ben JohnsonBen Johnson commercial litigation, ||

When an owners corporation gets into a dispute with a lot owner or third party, Section 262 of the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 (NSW) provides that legal documents can be served on the owners corporation at the address recorded on the common property title. Often however, the recorded address for service is not the street address of the strata plan and is not updated when strata managers change.

If an owners corporation does not update its address for service, documents can be validly served on the strata plan at its old address for service without the owners corporation’s knowledge. This could have significant legal and financial consequences. It is therefore crucial that an owners corporation ensures that its recorded address for service is current and correct.

A strata plan’s address for service is registered with New South Wales Land Registry Services and can be found by undertaking a title search. If your owners corporation needs to change its address for service, it must first resolve to do so at general meeting and then register the change with Land Registry Services.
