15. Preparation and maintenance of strata register.
(1) The Registrar shall prepare and maintain
for the purpose of this Act a register of strata titles to be known
as the strata register.
(2) The strata register shall consist
of a series of books, each relating to one lot, and every such book
shall contain -
(a) an index in Form 2 to the
individual parcels and, if any, appurtenant accessory parcels and to
the individual provisional block, if any, comprised in the lot;
(b) a statement in Form 3 which
subject to subsection (4), (5) and (6) shall -
(i) set out, or where appropriate
summarise so far as they relate to matters capable of affecting any
of those parcels or provisional blocks, all memorials, endorsements
and other entries which appeared on the register document of title to
the lot at the time the statement was authenticated by the Registrar;
(ii) confirm that there was
no such entries;
(c) a copy of the certified strata
plan prepared under paragraph (a) of subsection (1) of section 13; and
(d) the register document of
title to each parcel and each provisional block.
(3) The name of the management corporation,
and the address for the service of documents thereon, required to be
stated in the index in Form 2 shall be supplied to the Registrar by
the proprietor of the lot.
(3A) Where the proprietor of the lot, after
being given reasonable notice by the Registrar, fails to supply the
name of the management corporation or the address for service of documents
thereon as required by subsection (3), the Registrar -
(a) as regards the name of the management
corporation, shall himself determine the name to be stated in the index
in Form 2; or
(b) as regards the address for service,
shall cause to be stated in the index in Form 2 the postal address of
any building erected within the lot.
(4) For the purposes of the statement
in Form 3, no account shall be taken of any lease or tenancy relating
to a part of the building which corresponds precisely with, or is included
within one of the parcels created on the subdivision, or of any charge
of, or lien over, such a lease; but any such lease, tenancy or charge
shall be endorsed on the register document of title to the parcel in
(5) The Registrar shall, in the case of
private caveats or Registrar's caveats appearing on the register document
of title to the lot, if satisfied that such caveats affect only particular
parcels created on the subdivision, endorse such caveats on the register
documents of title to the parcels in question.
(6) Where the Registrar is unable to ascertain
to his satisfaction the caveats which affect the particular parcels,
he may, instead of setting out or summarising them, endorse a statement
in Form 3 to the effect that the lot is so subject to the caveats entered
on the register document of title to the lot.
Provided that the Registrar may at
any time thereafter, if it can be ascertained to his satisfaction that
such caveats relate to particular parcels, endorse such caveats on the
register documents of title to the parcels in question.
