Strata Information

Welcome to our latest newsletter full of strata title information from around Australia.

Back in June I reported that LookUpStrata had received over 60,000 page view on the site for the period Jan - June 2014. I've checked again and we have now exceeded 94,000 page views since January 2014. Wow, that is a lot of information sharing. And, our most popular page for the year so far? Our Strata Legislation page!

We are excited to announce that we have just complete our Strata State FactSheets for all states and territories around Australia - your one stop information page for your state or territory. For more information, see the story below or visit your state's FactSheet now.

In this edition we welcome our new blog author Leanne Habib, Premium Strata and welcome back Lisa Rutland, I would also like to extend a big 'thank you for the great information' - going out to our regular contributors.

We posed a question last week asking if you would prefer more regular, smaller newsletters. Based on the feedback provided, at this stage we have decided to stay with the fortnightly format. However, then next newsletter will be arriving a little early as I will be overseas for the normal edition release date.

Please forward this newsletter on to others who may be interested. We thank you for your support!

Kind regards
