STRATA TITLES ACT 1985 - SECT 99A

99A .         Order fixing different basis for levying contributions

        (1)         A proprietor who is aggrieved by the operation of a by-law referred to in section 42B may apply to the State Administrative Tribunal for an order under this section.

        (2)         An order under this section is an order —

            (a)         fixing a method of assessing contributions to be levied on proprietors under section 36 otherwise than —

                  (i)         in proportion to the unit entitlements of their respective lots; or

                  (ii)         in accordance with a by-law referred to in section 42B;

                or

            (b)         that such contributions are to be levied in accordance with section 36(1)(c)(i).

        (3)         An order under this section may relate to contributions to all of the expenses of the strata company or to one or more particular kinds of expenses.

        (4)         On the making of an application under subsection (1), the State Administrative Tribunal may make an order under this section that appears to it to provide for a method of fixing contributions that is fair to all proprietors having regard to their use and enjoyment of the common property and any building or other improvement on the parcel.

        (5)         To the extent of any inconsistency, an order under this section prevails over section 36(1)(c) or a by-law under section 42B.

        (6)         An order under this section is of no effect until a copy of the order has been recorded by the Registrar of Titles under section 115 on the strata/survey-strata plan to which it relates.

        (7)         An order under this section is to be taken to be revoked or amended to the extent that it is inconsistent with a by-law, or an amendment of a by-law, subsequently made by the strata company by resolution without dissent (or unanimous resolution, in the case of a two-lot scheme) and of effect under section 42(4).
