Strata Report

What is a Strata Title Report?

A title is a piece of paper that proves you own a property. A Strata Title proves you have ownership of a ‘unit’ of a building. This could be a villa, townhouse, or similar property. With a Strata Title you’re part of the aggregated ownership of a building. This ownership is called the Body Corporate which takes care of, and funds, the maintenance of a building.


What is a Strata Title?

With a Strata Title inspection, you discover how the property is organised so you fully understand the common ownership structure and related responsibilities.


What Will The Report Cover?

The Strata Title Inspection will cover:


  • Inspection of the corporation’s books and records
  • Claims
  • Insurance issues
  • Strata Titles Act breaches
  • Levies
  • AccountsLitigation
  • Pet regulations

For example, wouldn’t you like to know:


  • Whether or not the strata scheme is adequately insured?
  • What regular or special levies you will have to contribute?
  • Whether or not there is any evidence of building or structural problems that may forewarn you of further expenses down the track?
  • Whether or not the strata scheme has an adequate reserve of funds, or whether it’s stone broke?If there has been a history of disharmony between owners?
  • What the strata regulations are regarding items such as renovation, refurbishment or pet ownership?


Get Answers to make a wise purchase

This report provides you with the answers to those questions and more to help you make a wise purchase decision. So before you “sign on the dotted line”, order a strata title inspection report from Besafe Property Inspections.


Why Should You Get A Strata Report?

Strata title reports are extremely beneficial because they can cover (or uncover) valuable and important legal information you must know before buying a property.

Building maintenance issues are often revealed in the records and in some cases, an impending “Special Levy” may be revealed. A Special Levy is an amount levied on each unit owner by the owner’s corporation to fund a specific, often large expenditure where the owner’s corporation does not have sufficient money to do so. A Special Levy can, in some cases be many thousands of dollars per unit holder and where a levy like this is planned, it can often change a purchaser’s opinion of the value of the unit or villa/townhouse.

One key is understanding general levies which are paid quarterly and will cover annual maintenance and repairs.

“We had a few issues with our previous inspector and were looking for a new one. Fadi and I met at a local business group and from then on I have been using BeSafe Property Inspections. Initially I was impressed with Fadi’s credentials and his background in the building industry.”

We were skeptical at first that we had been recommended an inspector that would provide a report suiting the vendors but his report was honest and thorough and let us know about all the defects of the property. He was happy to talk through any questions we had which made us feel much more comfortable about what we were reading. They were prompt and organised.

Fadi has completed 3 inspections for us and has given an informative reports and also took the time to assist with our concerns and took the time to explain. I can not praise Fadi enough. Fadi was available for a last minute inspection and it was worth every penny. Given the sellers report was not as detailed. Can not recommend Fadi enough... he is on our list of the must dos ,have when buying a house . I trust his opinion and his experience and knowledge has been invaluable.

Lidia Georges

I had a good experience with besafe. Lidia was extremely helpful, oraganised and polite. She planned out everything on the day and proceeded to the next steps. Fadi was very informative and passionate about his work. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone.

Paul Ali

Being a first home buyer is daunting enough without having to organise so many inspections etc etc. On calling Lidia she immediately put my mind at rest, talked me through the full process and within 4 days I had a full comprehensive (but understandable) report. Fadi called immediately after the inspection to talk me through the report. I would not hesitate to contact BeSafe Property Inspections

Kathleen Daziel

I am happy to recommend Besafe's property inspection service. Fadi was professional and diligent in preparing a clear and comprehensive report for me at fairly short notice. And Lidia was refreshingly organised, courteous and most importantly cognizant of my priorities both prior to and after completion of the inspection. A really nice team to deal with!

Jonathan Reso

Lydia was incredibly helpful. I needed an inspection done on a property I was making an offer on with very short notice. They were able to undertake the inspection the next day and provided me with the full report only hours after the inspection was completed. Highly recommended.

Danielle McGuinness

From coordinating the inspection to the quality of the report and everything in between was nothing short of impeccable. If I'm ever in the fortunate position to purchase a house again I would only ever go to Besafe for the building and pest inspection. Highly recommended.
