Section 109 Certificate

A Section 109 Certificate is a certificate issued by the Owners Corporation of a Strata Scheme, containing detailed financial information about a specific ‘lot’, and information about the management of the scheme.

A strata title owner, or mortgagee, can apply in writing for a Section 109 Certificate, which involves paying a fee to the Owners Corporation. They certificate must be issued within 14 days of the request.

The information typically includes:

  • the names and contact details of Executive Committee members (including the Strata Management agent if relevant)
  • insurance details
  • the levy contributions to be made by owners (ie. administration fund and sinking fund levies)
  • any outstanding levies or fines
  • details about relevant by-laws that have been made recently
  • any other relevant information

The NSW Strata Schemes Management Act contains the information relating to Section 109 Certificates.
