Ok! So strata management is not something conventional and normal, the unique feature of ownership compel the owners to follow the defined and exclusive laws. One cannot just go and buy the ownership by paying the amount (that happens normally, but not here) one has to get the certificate in order to get the ownership.

The calculation laws for strata property is very simple, levies are decided and calculated on the basis of unit entitlement and this discussion takes place every year in an official, annual general meeting. Although extra charges may incur from time to time depends on the decision of the board authority. Since it’s a joint ownership mantra, one has to follow the law of boundaries as well which means, the person with the ownership thing has to know the exact boundaries, means what’s community area and what comes in the area of strata property must be very clear and followed accordingly (otherwise the community law and separate boundary law for strata property may hinder things badly).
