Strata title is an increasingly popular form of ownership within the property market, currently accounting for over one-third of all forms of titles registered in Western Australia. Some strata owners self-manage while others employ the services of professional strata managers. Owing to the increased volume of properties being registered as strata title and the accompanying increase in the amount of strata funds held by strata managers, there have been some calls in recent years to license strata managers.

To facilitate discussion on this matter and to establish whether licensing or other form of regulation of strata managers is warranted, Consumer Protection has prepared a consultation RIS and discussion paper. This paper canvasses three options.

  1. Licensing strata managers under the National Occupational Licensing Scheme.
  2. Regulating the conduct of strata managers without licensing.
  3. Maintaining the status quo.

(For more information see the National licensing (NOLs) in Western Australia review).
