Malaysia: High expectations for new strata management tribunal

Strata law in this country began five decades ago as a small part of the National Land Code 1965 — Part Nine, Chapter 1, Sections 151 to 157, 161 to 163, 355–374 (subdivision of buildings and issuance of subsidiary titles). The code came into force on Jan 1, 1966. In 1985, Parliament passed the Strata Titles Act 1985 (Act 318).
