South Australia (SA) – Body Corporate


South Australia is Australia's 'Festival State' and is known as the city of churches. South Australia has more than 22,000 strata schemes/ community title properties on title representing well over 120,000 units. The state capital, Adelaide, is known as the city of churches and offers a great geographically central location to Australian cities.

Body Corporate Managers manage the common property in the body corporate with the help of a Management Committee. When buying and selling property, the vendor disclosure document for the Strata Corporation is the Section 7 of the Vendor's Statement, Section 41 of the Strata Titles Act, and Section 139 of the Community Titles Act.

According to the ‘Australian National Strata Data Analysis 2018’ conducted by the UNSW, about 4% of South Australia’s population live in apartments. 47% of apartment residents in South Australia were born outside of Australia, which is less than the national statistic of 57%.

ACE Body Corporate Management has been a member of the state strata institute, Strata Community Association (SA), since 2007. Membership with SCA (SA) is compulsory for all ACE South Australian Strata Managers.

The legislation affecting bodies corporate in South Australia is the Strata Titles Act 1988, Community Titles Act 1996, Strata Titles Regulations 2018, and the Strata Titles (Fees) Revocation Regulations 2020.

The dispute resolution body in SA is the South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (SACAT).
