Strata Skills 101 workshops

An ever-increasing number of local residents live in apartment blocks, also known as strata-titled buildings.

Approximately 80% of residences in the City of Sydney local area are apartments – over 5 times the national average.

Different rules and approaches can apply in apartment blocks and not everyone is used to high-density living.

If you're new to apartment living we have developed a series of workshops to build your skills in different areas of strata, and to provide you with helpful tips and strategies.

The workshops involve group work, they are stand alone and can be done in any order.
