Types of subdivisions.

BUILT STRATA SUBDIVISION SCHEME

  • Each strata lot is comprised of one or more Part lots 
  • Part lots include areas within buildings or yard areas 
  • Lots may share services
  • Buildings are shown on the strata plan
  • The lots form a strata scheme/Company. Owner/s of the lots are owner/s of the company 
  • The strata company owns any common property 

SURVEY STRATA SUBDIVISION SCHEME

  • Each strata lot is comprised of one or more Part lots (although typically only one) 
  • Part lots are shown as dimensions and angles only 
  • Lots may share services
  • Buildings are NOT shown on the strata plan
  • All the lots form a strata scheme/company. Owner/s of the lots are owner/s of the company
  • The strata company owns any common property 

GREEN TITLE SUBDIVISION SCHEME

  • Individual lots are created that are completely independent of one another 
  • Lots comprise only one area (except in VERY unusual circumstances) 
  • Lots have direct connection to all services and must be separate to other lots (which can be expensive)
  • Lots are shown as boundary distances & angles only

How do they differ?

BUILT STRATA SUBDIVISION
Requires all buildings, fencing & landscaping to be complete before strata can be completed and subsequent titles applied for

Not generally used to create vacant lots

Commonly the cheapest and simplest process for subdivision - The only option available when one lot sits above another

Any future changes to buildings require permission from other strata lots within the strata scheme.
SURVEY STRATA SUBDIVISION
Can be done at any point during the building process (before, during and after building). Allows titles to be received earlier than with built strata

Can create vacant lots

Can be a longer, more complicated & more expensive process than built strata (typically around 7 months before application for possible new titles)

Less restrictive than built strata as modifications to buildings do not require permission from other strata lots.
GREEN TITLE SUBDIVISION
Can be done at any time (if building before subdivision, ensure all services run in separately & entirely within their own lot). Titles are allowed to be received earlier than with the build strata scheme.

Creates freehold/green title lots that are completely independent of one another.

Similar process, time and cost as survey strata (typically around 7 months before application for possible new titles)
EXISTING STRATA SUBDIVISION SCHEMES OR MULTIPLE LOTS
Where there is more than one green title lot, an amalgamation must occur before a strata can be completed.

Where an existing strata scheme exists the subdivision must occur under the same type of strata unless the entire strata is terminated.
Any change to the existing strata scheme such as termination or re-subdivision of a lot can only be done with the consent of the other strata lots. These changes cause additional issues that should be investigated prior to starting.
