As a city develops, an increase in the development of high-rises is inevitable as a result of limited land availability within the proximity of the city. Rapid urbanisation in the late 70’s has led to the development of more high-rise buildings. This provides a different type of property ownership, and subsequently led to the introduction of the Strata Titles Act in 1985. Today, strata living has become more acceptable and approximately 30% of the Malaysian population reside in stratified properties.

Stratified property developments have given rise to multiple issues affecting all parties dealings with it, including the house buyers, developers, architects and land surveyors. It has become an issue of great urgency, with regard to the legal transaction aspect for strata title properties. Other than Strata Titles Act 1985, stratified housing development also involves many other laws and regulations; such as the Housing Development Act 1966; Street, Drainage and Building Act 1974; and Strata Management Act 2013.

The recent amendments to the Strata Management Act was intended to overcome management and maintenance issues of the stratified buildings as well as to provide further interpretation of strata title. Nevertheless, recent problems that arose in stratified housing development revealed that there are other underlying issues that need to be dealt with, and which put the industry into dilemma.
