New Strata Meditation Portal

NSW Fair Trading has released a new Strata Mediation Portal to make lodging an application for help with a strata dispute quicker and easier than ever.

If you are unable to resolve a strata dispute through discussion or through the owners corporation, you can apply through the portal for a mediator to help to resolve it.

The mediation service is free and resolves over 65% of all strata disputes. It is available to anyone who lives in, owns or works in the strata sector or in a community scheme.

This service can assist you with many of the most common strata disputes including:

  • keeping pets
  • repairs and maintenance to common property
  • car parking
  • using common property.

Their experienced mediators are impartial and help parties reach a mutually beneficial agreement by taking part in an informal dispute resolution process.
