Massons are tracking the progress of two related strata renewals which are currently being considered by the Land & Environment Court. They relate to the acquisition of 2 x strata schemes sitting side by side in Macquarie Park. The proceedings are only in the initial stages. To date, there have been some interlocutory proceedings regarding applications for dissenting owners and the purchaser/developer to be joined to the proceedings and related cost considerations. The outcome of the interlocutory proceedings are not particularly surprising – all parties were joined and it was held that the owners corporation would be required to meet the costs incurred by the dissenting owner in bringing the Notice of Motion (per s188 of the SSDA). It will be interesting to watch this test case unfold.
