Two new pieces of legislation (the Regulatory Systems (Building and Housing) Amendment Act, effective from 30 May 2017, and the Unit Titles Amendment Regulations 2017) introduced a number of changes to the Unit Titles Act 2010 (UTA) and the Unit Titles Regulations (Regulations).  Knowledge of the amendments is essential for property lawyers, especially given that they are not yet incorporated in the current UTA and Regulations reprints.
