When the original base plan of a strata scheme has been found to be unreliable it may be necessary to lodge a plan of redefinition of the strata parcel prior to the registration of a strata plan of subdivision or consolidation.
If a strata plan of subdivision or consolidation proposes to create lots that are external to a building and are within 2 metres of the parcel boundary or if structural changes to a building will result in a change to the offsets from the building to the parcel boundary the following will apply.
- If the base plan has been found to be reliable a report should be furnished by the surveyor to confirm this.
- If the base plan has been found to be unreliable a plan of redefinition must be lodged and registered prior to the registration of the strata plan.
If the strata plan of subdivision or consolidation does not require a location plan no report or redefinition plan will be required.
An owner’s corporation may lodge a redefinition of the base plan at any time. If the changes to the parcel boundaries have any effect on the lot boundaries a strata plan of subdivision may be required.
- The plan must be lodged as a deposited plan and meet the requirements of a redefinition.
- The plan heading should be ‘Redefinition of Strata Parcel - SP________’.
- The administration sheet must be executed by the owners corporation by affixing the seal under Approved Form 23.
Note The plan cannot redefine the boundaries of the strata lots.
