New owners wishing to renovate, particularly those that have recently moved from a house to an apartment, may not be aware that - unlike single dwellings that just require their plans to be approved by the local council - renovations to strata title units must comply with any relevant existing by-laws and also require prior consent from the Owners Corporation.
View Iora's Renovation Guidelines for general tips and rules for owners wishing to renovate their apartment at Iora.
PLEASE NOTE: As of January 2017, the Department of Fair Trading has revised its rules regarding Strata Renovations.
This FACT SHEET sets out the new rules which over-rule Iora's Renovation Guidelines. Iora Strata Committee is currently revising its Guidelines document.
