Strata common property

The owners corporation can decide by special resolution that it is inappropriate for a particular item to be part of the common property. This decision must not affect the safety or appearance of the strata scheme.
The owners corporation looks after common property and does all the repairs. This includes replacing and renewing common property when needed.
For a checklist of common property see this FairTrading NSW link.

Google RE -v- Domain Radar

Domain.com.au has responded to Google Real Estate Search with Radar search. It lets you find what specific 'points of interest' you would like to live near or away from, whether it is 'important' or a 'nice to have' and how close to or far away from the point of interest you would like to be.
Google Real estate map search:


We are interested to find out points of difference between Domain and this new service.
So far we have found:
Google is more difficult for sellers, vendors & lessors to add their property
Domain is more expensive (ie. not free).
