In our video series Michael Vumbaca, General Manager at Jamesons Strata discusses the changes that have been made to the renovations process.
Renovations are a huge part of the strata industry. A large percentage of people purchase and want to renovate. There’s now a 3-tier process for renovations as per the new strata scheme legislation.
If you are planning to renovate your unit, you should contact your strata manager in the first instance to discuss the type of works that you are planning to undertake. They’ll be able to provide you with some guidance on the type of process that you need to go through to have your renovations approved. It’s also important to note that your building might already have a specific by-law that deals with renovations. This may impose things upon you like bonds or other requirements for your renovation to be approved.
If you are planning to renovate, bring all the documentation you have to your strata manager and they will guide you through the path to have your renovation approved in a timely and efficient manner.
