Hi, I’m John, solicitor, and reviewing your post, and may need to ask a few questions a long the way to assist you.

You have provided some excellent information, is there any more detail that you can assist with?

Customer
I bought a unit in Sydney, NSW off plans. After finally moving in and having paid levies for months it came to my attention that there were incorrect plans lodged with council, there is no strata plan and the unit entitlements for each unit were incorrect.
Can the strata manager charge levies when the unit entitlements are incorrect and there is no strata plan?

Concerning your important matter regarding the unit levy entitlements being incorrectly stated on the strata plan or in your case no strata plan, deliveries cannot be charged in any fashion. What do you need to do is immediately raise a claim in the New South Wales civil administrative tribunal without delay to dispute any Fees that have been put to you on the basis that there is no strata plan with details delivery division. In addition to this you could also Sue your conveyancer as they failed to check the contract of sale quickly in regards ***** ***** levies that were applicable to your unit which should have been picked up that there was no strata plan in place. Or that of a strata subdivision completed that details the unit entitlements

So you have two aspects to do, one is to see your conveyancer to the other one is to raise a claim in the New South Wales civil administrative tribunal disputing delivery charges that you have received
