When should you appoint a Strata Certifier

This is an article to discuss what a strata certifier is, and when you should appoint one.

Surveying - a changing profession

How many people still visualise a “Surveyor” as a rough and rugged individual, setting  off for the bush to parts unknown with a pack horse and a menagerie trailing behind in his wake.  Ah, such a romantic picture of days gone by -  but what of  to-day’s image? A dusty and sweaty forlorn type bashing in pegs to get the linen plan to Council before the client (oblivious to the monsoonal conditions) rings a fourth time complaining of delays?  A cool calm professional sitting in the office, e-mailing, downloading off the net, consulting the latest GIS database and forwarding valuable information down into cyberspace?

Strata Certificates Advantages

Strata Certificates can be issued by either Council or a private accredited certifier. Discuss the advantage, options with regards to developer and purchasers.

Strata Subdivision as Complying Development

Recently, there has been amendments to legislation that now makes strata subdivision complying development across all Councils in NSW.
