Proposed Amendments to the Strata Titles Act 1998

​The Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment is requesting further feedback on key issues concerning the Strata Titles Act 1998 (the Act). 

The Act regulates strata developments and day-to-day strata living in Tasmania.

As part of the Department’s legislative program, the Recorder of Titles has undertaken a review of the Act.

To capture information from the strata community of Tasmania, a Consultation Paper has been developed with options posed in relation to the key issues.

The Consultation Paper gives its audience another opportunity to provide submissions. The feedback received may then subsequently be used when developing amendments to the Act.

Consultation Paper

A consultation paper has been developed that puts forward options for changing the legislation and outlines the key issues relative to that discussion.
