Bulletin No. 286 | 1 June 2016
Lodgement of the Strata Titles General Regulations 1996 (STGR) Forms
Landgate is currently undertaking a business improvement program to streamline operational processes and modernise our systems. One of these processes is the lodgement of the STGR forms at Landgate. Currently, these forms are lodged online either with the plan or with the lodgement of the application to register the plan (the application).
There are several issues with this current process, the main ones being:
- Conveyancers lodging these forms around the time of lodging the application are forced to email them to firstname.lastname@example.org as they do not have access to the Survey Channel, which enables online lodgement of these forms.
- There have been several occasions where paper forms were erroneously inserted into the application and lodged at Landgate. With the advent of the New Land Registry and Landgate going ‘paperless’, this insertion has resulted in the forms being included as part of the dealing.
After consultation with several survey firms and industry groups, Landgate advises that strata/survey-strata plans (including plans of re-subdivision/consolidation) lodged for registration on or after 1 July 2016 must be accompanied by all the relevant strata forms required by the Strata Titles Act 1985.
