Comments wanted to shape new strata law

| 22/01/2009

(CNS): Long considered to be outdated and ambiguous, Cayman’s Strata Titles Law and Regulations are about to be addressed. The Law Reform Commission has announced that it intends to commence work on the reform of the Strata Titles Law and Regulations in the Cayman Islands, and is now seeking contributions from the public to help shape the new law. 

The commission said that members of the public are invited to submit their comments on any aspect of the regulation of strata titles on the Islands or to highlight any issues or problems which have arisen in this area of the law. Submissions should be made no later than 6 March 2009 and should be mailed to the Director, Law Reform Commission, c/o Government Administration Building or delivered by hand to the offices of the Commission on 3rd Floor Anderson Square. Submissions may also be sent to  Cheryl.Neblett@gov.ky.

The existing Cayman Islands Strata Titles Registration Law, in its earliest form, was reportedly first enacted in 1973 and was based on the Australian strata legislation of New South Wales, created in the early 1960s.

Although some changes have been made to Cayman legislation since the first enactment, it is suggested that the changes have been modest when compared to the evolution of laws in other jurisdictions.
