There are different types of strata arrangements, such as residential units segmented into lots, or freestanding properties known as strata title properties. Strata residential set-up offers a plethora of benefits, such as lower capital’s demands, a secure environment, and a quality lifestyle, but it also has disadvantages. Let’s explore strata-titled property further to understand what they are.

Strata title refers to ownership of an apartment set up on multiple levels as well as proportional rights to shared spaces. Here, strata refer to apartment units at different levels or strata, and shared spaces include parking, lifts, gardens, etc.

It is easiest to understand strata title property by referring to an example. For instance, a building is divided into separate lots when built following a strata scheme, such as apartments or individual floors. A strata lot can also be called a strata unit or condominium, as it extends across an area of land. However, strata segmentation is not only vertical but also horizontal. Freestanding properties consisting of land spread over a large area are examples of the horizontal strata development.

An owner of a strata-titled property acquires the property’s common properties as well, which implies that he cannot separate his interests as a strata unit owner from his share in the ownership of the common properties.
