The Strata Global Group, established in Dubai UAE in 2005, a sister company of Better Homes has been providing strata consulting and management services in GCC countries and India for a variety of mixed use, multi owned communities and developments. Partners comprise experienced professional firms from Australia (Australian Unit Administration & K& G Strata Consultants) and Dubai (Betterhomes) with all partners individually holding in excess of twenty years of operating experience in the field of strata consulting, strata management and real estate investment management.

Group companies provide services necessary for the establishment and management of Master Communities and mixed use strata developments in UAE, Oman, India and Australia. The company has established a high reputation for the

provision of quality professional services in the field of Planning, Consulting and the Management of Body Corporate (DIFC – Dubai and Australia), Jointly Owned Property (Emirate of Dubai UAE), and Housing Cooperative Societies (India). Additional services have been provided on projects in Doha, Qatar and Tangiers, Morocco.

In the United Arab Emirates, Strata Global operates with three licensed companies, ‘Strata Global Real Estate Consultants’ which concentrates on providing consulting support for all group projects such as FMO assessments, service charge budget control, cost benchmarking, entitlement assessment sinking fund forecasts and Insurance Replacement Valuations. The Owners Association Management is undertaken exclusively by ‘SG Community Management Services’ and “SG Community Management Services DMCC”.

In India, the group operates under the banner ‘SG Community Management Pvt Ltd’ and is involved in a community management appointment with Lavasa Corporation, developer of India’s first and largest hill city project, conceptualized in post independence India. The Lavasa arrangement is unique inasmuch as the community management agreement also entails property management from handover including leasing (short & long term) of villas and the apartment buildings concurrently with the master community, owners association and common property management. Strata Global has acquired a Betterhomes franchise agreement for Lavasa City for the purpose of leasing and property management.

Strata Global’s corporate strategy is to provide a full range of services necessary to achieve compliance under the respective regional strata laws such as Sultani Decrees in Oman, Body Corporate and Strata and Community Management Laws in Australia and the respective regional Housing Cooperative Society legislation of India.

With an experienced management team and the cutting-edge Strata Max software applications based around a business model utilising VPN infrastructure all offices can be supported from any location.

Strata Global strives to set the standards of professionalism in the consulting and management industry as it relates to multiple owned property in the GCC and India. The group is planning to train managers in Dubai, Oman and India and have a ready pool of experts in several regions providing employment opportunities in several countries and therefore significant economies of scale for any area of operation.
