Administration Sheets (Strata Plan of Subdivision)

This page provides information for administration sheets accompanying a strata plan of subdivision of

  • lot(s) (not creating common property)
  • lot(s) (creating common property)
  • lots and common property
  • common property only
  • development lot(s)

See section 13 and 14 Strata Schemes Development Act 2015.

The Administration Sheets for a strata plan of subdivision can be prepared using:

  • the Digital Form Builder through NSW LRS Connect,
  • by completing the Strata Plan Interactive form, or
  • by completing each of the Strata Plan individual sheets being Strata Plan Form 3.03 or 3.04, Strata Plan Form 3.07 (2019) and Strata Plan Form 3.08. Consisting of at least 3 sheets, each of these sheets must be numbered as sheets 1, 2 and 3 respectively. If there is insufficient space on sheet 3 for the information required, extra sheets may be added and must be numbered sequentially in the upper right corner.


Information on Administration Sheets for initial strata plans can be found here.

The Administration Sheets are registered as part of the plan and when a copy of the registered plan is ordered, the Administration Sheets will also be provided. 

Strata plan form 3.03 and 3.04

One of either Strata Plan Form 3.03 or Strata Plan Form 3.04 will always be sheet 1 of the Administration Sheets for a strata plan of subdivision.

Strata plan form 3.07 (2019)

The purpose of this approved form is to provide:

  • the schedule of unit entitlement and
  • the Valuer’s Certificate completed by a qualified valuer as defined in section 4(1) Strata Schemes Development Act 2015.

Sheet numbering

Insert the sheet number and the total number of sheets of the Administration Sheets.

Strata plan number and registration details

These panels are for Office Use Only and should be left blank on plans lodged for registration.

NOTE: If the plan has a pre-allocated plan number or was pre-examined the strata plan number may be completed in font style Arial, Regular with a font size of 56.

Valuer’s certificate

The Valuer’s Certificate is to certify the schedule of unit entitlement. This must be completed by a “qualified valuer” and provide the following:

  • the valuer’s full name
  • the company the valuer works for or where there is no company, the valuer's full address
  • confirmation that the valuer is a “qualified valuer” as defined in section 4(1) Strata Schemes Development Act 2015
  • the professional body of which the valuer is a member, and
  • the class of membership and their membership number.

Valuers must include the date that the valuer made the valuation and apportioned the unit entitlements (the “valuation day”) in accordance with Schedule 2 Strata Schemes Development Act 2015 and clause 7(4) Strata Schemes Development Regulation 2016.

Where both the Strata Certificate and Valuer’s Certificate are signed on or after 1 January 2020, the Valuer’s Certificate in Strata Plan Form 3.07 (2019) must be used. If the Strata Certificate is signed on or after 1 January 2020 but the Valuer’s Certificate is signed before 1 January 2020, then the use of the previous version of the Valuer’s Certificate on Strata Plan Form 3.07 is acceptable.

NOTE: For a Valuer’s Certificate for a subdivision involving common property (but not involving a development lot), the prescribed “valuation day” prevents the valuation being made more than 2 months before the application for the Strata Certificate in accordance with clause 7(4)(a) Strata Schemes Development Regulation 2016.

The definition of "valuation day" for a strata certificate for a strata plan of subdivision involving a development lot is the day nominated as the valuation day in the original schedule of unit entitlement that accompanied the strata plan. See clause 7(4)(b) Strata Schemes Development Regulation 2016

NOTE: A completed Valuer’s Certificate is not required to be endorsed on the administration sheet of a strata plan of subdivision of lots only, where no development lot is involved and where no common property is being subdivided or created. It would be required in all other instances of a strata plan of subdivision.

Schedule of unit entitlements

The schedule of unit entitlements must be shown on Strata Plan Form 3.07 (2019) in accordance with the requirements set out in Schedule 2 of the Strata Schemes Development Act 2015 and clause 7 Strata Schemes Development Regulation 2016.

The schedule on a strata plan of subdivision (other than the schedule for a strata plan for the subdivision of a development lot) must include reference to all lots in the strata scheme, whether existing or new lots, except for the lot or lots being subdivided. The existing strata plan number must be added to the strata lots which are not a result of the subdivision.

The schedule must contain two vertical columns. The first column should show the lot numbers in numerical sequence and the second should show the unit entitlement for each lot. The final row must show the aggregate of the unit entitlement.

Each unit entitlement must be expressed as a whole number.

It is the responsibility of the surveyor to show the schedule of unit entitlement, however each unit entitlement must be apportioned based upon the market value of the lots in accordance with Schedule 2 Strata Schemes Development Act 2015 and determined by a qualified valuer.

If there is insufficient space on Strata Plan Form 3.07 (2019) the schedule may be continued on Strata Plan Form 3.08.

Strata Plans of Subdivision

Subdivision of lot(s) only (not involving a development lot) and the plan is not subdividing or creating common property

A schedule of unit entitlement is required in accordance with clause 3 of Schedule 2 Strata Schemes Development Act 2015 must be provided on Strata Plan form 3.07 (2019).

The newly created lots must equal the aggregate unit entitlement of the subdivided lots. The unit entitlement for the remaining lots and the total unit entitlement for the scheme must not change.

The plan is creating common property or subdividing lots and common property

A schedule of unit entitlement in accordance with clause 4 of Schedule 2 Strata Schemes Development Act 2015 must be provided on Strata Plan Form 3.07 (2019).

Any change to the aggregate unit entitlement or the existing unit entitlement of any lot in the strata scheme as a result of common property being subdivided or created should be shown in the schedule of unit entitlement. This will require the completion of the Valuer’s Certificate and the lodgment of Approved Form 11 indicating the owners corporation has passed a special resolution agreeing to the changes.

Example B

The following is an example of the schedule of unit entitlement for a Strata Plan of Subdivision of lot 2 in SP98### this may be a subdivision of lot 2 only (creating common property) or a subdivision of lot 2 and common property.

UE-SUB-example-b.PNG

Subdivision of common property only


A schedule of unit entitlement in accordance with clause 4 of Schedule 2 Strata Schemes Development Act 2015 must be provided on Strata Plan Form 3.07 (2019).

Any change to the aggregate unit entitlement or the existing unit entitlement of any lot in the strata scheme as a result of common property being subdivided or created should be shown in the schedule of unit entitlement. This will require the completion of the Valuer’s Certificate and the lodgment of Approved Form 11 indicating the owners corporation has passed a special resolution agreeing to the changes.

Example C

The following is an example of the schedule of unit entitlement for a Strata Plan of Subdivision of Common Property only creating lot 5.

A schedule of unit entitlement in accordance with clause 5 of Schedule 2 Strata Schemes Development Act 2015 must be provided on Strata Plan Form 3.07 (2019).

The schedule of unit entitlement must only show the new lots in the strata plan of subdivision. The total aggregate must equal the unit entitlement of the development lot being subdivided. This will also require the completion of a Valuer’s Certificate.

Example D

The following is an example of the schedule of unit entitlement where there is a strata plan of subdivision of development lot 7. The unit entitlement for lot 7 prior to the subdivision was 90.
