Strata Law in Peninsular Malaysia

15 May, 2018, Kuala Lumpur

FOCUSING ON
  • Harmony in strata living
  • Effective strata management
  • Avoiding and managing disputes – House Rules
  • Strata Tribunal – jurisdiction & procedure
OBJECTIVES

The Strata Titles (Amendment) Act 2013 (referred to Act A1450) and the Strata Management Act 2013 (referred to as Act 757) came into force simultaneously on June 1, 2015.

 

By the end of 2013, there were already more than one million strata titles registered in Peninsular Malaysia. Today at least 6 million people live in strata properties in Peninsular Malaysia.

 

Before Act A1450 and Act 757 came into being, management of strata properties was governed by the Building & Common Property (Management & Maintenance) Act 2007 (Act 663) and the Strata Titles Act 1985 (Act 318). Act 663 applies to strata properties before a Management Corporation comes into existence, whilst Act 318 applies only after a Management Corporation has been established. After Act A1450 and Act 757 were enforced, some provisions in Act 318 ceased to have any effect whilst Act 663 was completely repealed.

 

This one day refresher course will focus on the development of strata law in Peninsular Malaysia since its beginning (as part of the National Land Code 1965) until the present day. Through case studies, discussions will highlight the strength and weakness of the law across the years.

 

Representatives of developers, property managers, financial institutions, government agencies, local authorities and strata owners attending this one day course will obtain a deeper understanding of the critical issues affecting strata living in the country.
