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). It was a humble beginning, containing the usual components of strata law, fashioned after the corresponding legislation then prevailing in New South Wales, Australia. There was no provision for the settlement of disputes, probably due to the belief that few problems would occur. Act 318 applies to Peninsular Malaysia only, because Sabah has its Land (Subsidiary Title) Enactment 1972 and Sarawak has its Strata Titles Ordinance 1974.     Read the article…………….
