Customer data support for new leasehold strata

Strata in WA is changing for the better with amendments to the Strata Titles Act 1985 now confirmed to commence on 1 May 2020. The changes include the introduction of leasehold strata.

Landgate will be ready for developers to lodge plans for leasehold strata, starting 1 May 2020.

New strata related attributes will be added to the following data products to reflect this change:

  • Land tenure data (including integrated CAD/TEN/PSA) both via SLIP and our geodata delivery channels
  • Sales evidence data (including pending sales data)
  • Residential property attributes data.

Landgate will provide you with access to data resources needed to help prepare for this change. Please refer to your product(s) of interest below.

If you require further assistance, please contact your Landgate account manager or any member of our Business and Government Solutions team via email BusinessSolutions@Landgate.wa.gov.au or telephone (08) 9273 7683.

You can also visit strata.wa.gov.au for information on all aspects of WA strata reform.
