On 1 June 2015 the NSW Supreme Court introduced a specialist Equity Division list for Real Property matters. The Real Property List will include claims in relation to the legislation regulating the creation and management of strata and community title schemes. Current Supreme Court proceedings in the Equity Division may be transferred to the list if the matter falls within the subject matter of the specialist list. This effect of this change is that a sub-division list is created where the judges are familiar with and regularly deal with strata and community title matters leading to efficiency in the hearing of such matters, which was initially tested by the introduction of the Technology and Construction list, with much success. The division was probably created because of the increasing number of disputes in this area, justifying the additional resources from the department of justice.
