Schedule 4: Transitional provisions

Paragraphs 7 to 11

Paragraphs 7 to 11 contain provisions about common areas that are at present included in the title sheet of each of the sharing properties.  The new scheme requires that when such areas are created in future they are to have their own title sheet.  Paragraphs 7 and 8 allow, but do not oblige, the Keeper to create a separate title sheet for common areas that already exist.  Paragraph 9 deals with developments that are part-completed on the designated day.  It allows the present practice of including common areas in the title sheets of the sharing properties to continue in respect of the remainder of the development.
