Welcome to Strata Solve

Strata Solve is Queensland’s leading strata dispute prevention, dispute resolution and problem-solving firm. Not only do we resolve strata disputes, but we also help you prevent them happening again. Most important of all, we equip you with the strategy you need to protect your strata investment. Getting you confident, assured and composed about strata is our aim. That’s whether you are an owner, committee, caretaker, strata manager, not-for-profit entity in the strata sector, government, a media outlet, or a tenant.

How do we do this? With unrivalled expertise and experience. Our is Director Chris Irons, formerly Queensland’s Commissioner for Body Corporate and Community Management. That is the only role of its type in the world. Chris has seen and heard virtually everything in strata. Even so, Chris knows that strata is about treating each case on its merits: no two strata issues are the same. That means Strata Solve develops tailored solution for each of our clients. While we are subject matter experts in Queensland strata legislation, we can also provide services in other jurisdictions. That is because our focus is on communications: effective strata communications transcends borders.

Our focus is on finding you a solution which takes the least amount of time and minimises both the resources you must spend on it, and the emotional toil you invest in it. We have no interest in prolonging the dispute or anything which adds to your distress. We are not a law firm, so litigation is never our goal. We think that most strata disputes are best solved through methods that do not involve formal, legal proceedings. We are strong advocates for mediation as a way to solve strata disputes: Chris is a nationally accredited mediator and member of the Resolution Institute.

You are reading this because you have a strata problem. You may be unsure how to deal with it. You know is that it is causing you time, money and grief. You suspect there must be a better way forward and yet because strata legislation is complex, the solutions elude. Maybe you want to reduce the pressure of the situation and get some separation between it and you, by having it looked at with a fresh pair of eyes. Perhaps you need strata expertise, based on years of experience, with someone to give you some guidance and clarity on your options. Or you want some practical, straight-talking, strategic advice about your strata situation.

Welcome, then, to Strata Solve. With Chris’s unparalleled expertise at the helm, we look forward to untangling strata problems with you, one thread at a time. You can book a consultation with us at a time to suit, or you can get in touch with your details.
