My strata corporation consists of two sections – commercial and residential. The residential section has a limited common property lobby area with furniture that is looking worn and should be replaced. Do all owners have to pay for the new furniture?
Strata Property Regulation 11.2 provides that an operating expense or special levy related to limited common property designated to a section is shared amongst only those strata lots who are entitled to the benefit of the limited common property.
Our strata corporation has residential and non-residential strata lots. We have always had a single strata council and share one operating fund and contingency reserve fund. Are we required to have separate sections?
No. If there is no will amongst the owners to have separate sections, then it is not required.
