How our developer and property services work

Our property developer services team has expert knowledge of best practice administration, compliance, operational structures, and financial processes. We will ensure that all buildings in your strata development are compliant with state legislation and designed to enhance Australia’s community living landscape.

PICA Group can also help prepare draft budgets, advise on project configuration to optimise financial returns, liaise with insurance brokers and legal experts on your behalf and provide strata management services once your property is established.

Whatever the size or scope of your development, we will provide a high standard of guidance, support and delivery from inception to final settlement and handover.

Property titling

We review everything related to your property title including ownership details and potential encumbrances, easements, caveats or covenants.

Levy and fee estimates

We help you calculate what your levies and strata fees need to be to cover the building and common area maintenance, caretakers, cleaners, shared water and electricity and building insurance.

Property legislation

Our legal team specialises in property and strata law to provide expert guidance through the complexities of Australian property legislation.

By-laws and rules

We can draft precise and effective strata by-laws or building rules for your property that are legislatively accurate, minimise your risk and support the lifestyle of your property.

Facilities management

Our specialised facilities management service can boost the value of your new strata title development by instituting best practice management procedures such as preventative maintenance.
