If you’re considering purchasing a unit in strata scheme, there are a few things you need to know first. Your solicitor/conveyancer may also recommend you obtain this valuable document as it provides you with information about the property you are interested in. A section 184 certificate is typically prepared in response to the sale of a unit and is primarily used for the purposes of determining any financial adjustments (for monies prepaid or owing) that should be made or included to the settlement final figure.
What is a Section 184 Certificate?
A section 184 certificate highlights important facts about the financial situation of the building and the lot you are interested in and it’s a good idea to do your research before you purchase into the strata scheme complex.
What information is contained in a Section 184 Certificate?
The content of the section 184 certificate is prescribed under Schedule 1 of the Strata Schemes Management Regulation 2016.
A summary of the key information contained within the certificate are as follows:
- Ownership details and individual lot details as recorded on the strata scheme strata roll
- Details of members elected to the strata committee
- Details of the strata managing agent
- Details of the facilities/building manager/caretaker (if applicable)
- Details of levies and other charges raised against the individual lot
- Details of any by-laws not yet registered on title or consolidated by-laws
- Details of insurances held by the strata plan
- Details of any legal proceedings
Who can order a Section 184 Certificate?
A section 184 certificate can only be requested by the owner, mortgagee or covenant chargee of the lot (or a person authorised by the owner, mortgagee or covenant chargee). As such, the request for the certificate is usually submitted by the vendor’s conveyancer/lawyer.
A request for a section 184 certificate must be made in writing to the owners corporation and must be accompanied by the current prescribed fee (as noted above).
