A strata wind-up is a process wherein owners within a strata corporation work together to market and sell their property to a developer or investor. The Strata Property Act was amended in 2016 to lower the approval threshold from 100% to 80% to allow owners to consider this opportunity.

As owners plan for the future of their buildings, we believe there are three pieces of information they need to make an informed decision: the value of their home on the residential market, the cost of any repairs required for the building over the next two, five and ten years, and the value of their strata lot based on a wind-up. Some owners choose to wind-up to capitalize on large financial gains, others to avoid large special levies, but all owners should be informed prior to making any big decisions.

Yes, the strata will need to engage a realtor to market the property. A comprehensive marketing strategy is required to ensure the maximum value is achieved for the ownership and to satisfy the court to then approve the sale.

The Strata Property Act now requires a minimum of 80% of the voting rights in the Strata Corporation to approve the sale and wind-up of a property. Unlike other votes, the support for the wind-up resolution is calculated based on all voting rights, not just the actual votes.

Please contact our team for a detailed overview of the wind-up process.

The wind-up process is designed to create the best outcome for strata corporations that are willing to work together. Please invite us to provide information to your council and ownership early in the process and let us assist your strata in paving the road to a successful outcome.
