Research with the Strata Community Association

Driving comprehensive research to support the Strata Sector throughout Australia and New Zealand

SCA Ltd has created a newly formed Research and Development Board Advisory Group.


The group will provide recommendations and advice to the SCA to undertake action in a timely matter:

  • To assist in the development and implementation of the Strata Community Association’s research agenda.

  • To ensure that our research aligns with the research vision, framework and priority areas of the Association.

  • To ensure the research is within our capacity and is of a quality that can be recommended to the Board for consideration and endorsement.

  • To ‘make a difference’ and to have a major impact on strata policy and practice.

  • To guide and assist the Association in identifying key challenges globally, over the next 5 – 20 years.

  • To review the Association’s current and planned areas of focus and its activities, in terms of impact or potential for impact, on the identified key challenges.

  • To make recommendations, regarding the best strategies for the Association to pursue, to maximize its future impact on these challenges.

Bringing together Research to collate and share on the Multi-owned Properties Research Hub

Multi-owned Properties Research Incorporated is a not-for-profit association founded by a group of academics and lawyers who saw a need to collate and share research on multi-owned properties across institutional and geographic boundaries.


With more people living in multi-owned properties than ever before, governments, practitioners and residents need access to reliable research and opportunities to engage with experts across multiple disciplines. 

Australasian Strata Insights Report


In 2020, SCA have again partnered with UNSW City Futures to deliver comprehensive data on the strata sector in Australasia. The data this year now extends to New Zealand.

This report is an analysis on the state of the strata industry. It includes figures on the numbers of strata schemes (plans) and lots (units), the estimated numbers of people employed in the strata management industry and the estimated value of property owned under strata title.

It plays an important role in supporting ground-breaking academic research into the strata sector and facilitating international discussions, comparisons and collaborations, thus providing a voice for the broader strata community.

The 2020 survey is the second comprehensive dataset of the numbers of strata schemes, their value, their assets, and the people employed to serve them in Australia, and the first in New Zealand.
