Strata living contribute in many ways to new features in urban development. In built environment theory housing developers are expected to provide conducive environments to promote a better life for residents. One of the encouraging environments is proper management of strata building. Consequently developers who develop strata buildings are expected to discharge their duties and obligations to manage the strata building efficiently and professionally. However under the Malaysian law, the duties to manage strata buildings are not only impose on developers but these responsibilities shall be shared by the house owners too. This paper analyses the problems dealing with strata in Peninsula Malaysia and the governing laws and regulations on strata. This paper then seeks to see to what extent the existing laws and regulations in Peninsula Malaysia facilitate the developers and purchasers as well as the local authority to regulate the living in strata buildings. It will focus on the rights and responsibilities of the developers that developed the strata projects, the community living within the strata as well as the government in managing the affairs within the strata. Discussions on these points are expected to reveal whether the existing laws are sufficient to manage the strata building. Discussions in this paper will involve various types of strata developed in Peninsular Malaysia, for instance condominiums, apartments, flats, serviced apartments and gated communities.
