What is Stratum Title, Is It Acceptable Security?
Among the various property titles is the stratum title. It’s important to distinguish the stratum title from the strata title for those interested in securing a home loan against the property. In both, individuals purchase a flat and shares in the lot. A company manages the lot and maintains it. Plus, they’re responsible for overseeing the lot’s finances.
In the stratum scenario, an individual owns the dwelling they purchased. The individual has the right to purchase shares to own elements known as common property. Common property includes shared stairs, walkways, and gardens. Owners agree to the terms set down by the company.
Since a stratum titleholder is beholden to the rules set down by the company managing the lot, it takes a little longer to assess it. The property on the title probably has value, but the rules governing the property might be cumbersome. This poses a challenge for the lender in case the applicant fails to follow through on repayments.
