What is the Strata Hub?

    The NSW Government is building an online Strata Hub to make it easier for people who build, own, live or work in strata to get the information they need. The Strata Hub offers:

    • a central point for strata schemes to report key information each year
    • a range of education resources and information to support strata communities
    • access to the digitised Strata Building Bond & Inspection Scheme (SBBIS) for newly constructed strata developments to identify and fix early building defects.

    Below is an impression of what the Strata Hub could look like.  

    What is the owners corporation?

    All lot owners in a strata scheme are automatically part of the owners corporation (previously the 'body corporate') and have a right to take part in the decision making.

    How is this consultation related to other recent NSW Government strata consultations?

    Recently, the NSW Government has held other strata consultations, including a survey on pets in strata, and a review of all strata laws.

    Since the reporting scheme will be a new requirement and is not yet commenced, these previous consultations did not include questions about annual reporting requirements or the Strata Hub.

    The pets in strata consultation led to changes in the law that commenced on 25 August 2021. The consultation on the review of all strata laws ended on 7 April 2021 and a report on the outcomes of the review will be tabled in Parliament in November 2021.
