If you are the owner of all units/part lots or there is unanimous agreement from the strata company (and mortgage lenders agree) you can convert the built scheme if the future lots will meet the current zoning and planning requirements. Meeting the freehold requirements are typically more difficult as the conversion requires the complete separation of all services (water, power, sewer etc.) so that no lot accesses a service via another lot. A conversion to survey strata can share the services and typically a WAPC subdivision application is not applicable.
