(1)  Upon registration of a strata plan any common property in that plan vests in the body corporate for the estate or interest evidenced by the folio of the Register comprising the land the subject of that plan but freed and discharged from any mortgage, charge, covenant charge, lease, writ or caveat affecting that land immediately before registration of that plan.
(2)  The Registrar-General shall, upon registration of a strata plan, create a folio of the Register for the estate or interest of the body corporate in any common property in that strata plan.
(3)  Upon registration of a strata plan of subdivision creating common property, the common property so created vests in the body corporate for the estate or interest evidenced by the folio of the Register comprising the land the subject of that plan but freed and discharged from any mortgage, charge, covenant charge, lease, writ or caveat affecting that land immediately before registration of that plan.
(4)  Upon registration of a notice of conversion, any lot thereby converted into common property vests in the body corporate for the estate or interest evidenced by the folio of the Register comprising the land the subject of that notice at the time when the notice is registered but freed and discharged from any mortgage, charge, covenant charge, lease, writ or caveat affecting that land before registration of that notice.
(5)  Nothing in subsection (1), (3) or (4) affects any right or remedy that may be exercised otherwise than in relation to common property by a person who is a mortgagee, chargee, covenant chargee, lessee, judgment creditor or caveator, even though the person may have signed or consented to the registration of the plan or signed the notice creating the common property.
(6)  In this section (other than this subsection), lease does not include a lease granted to the provider of an electricity, telephone or telecommunication service that is required by that provider for the provision of the service. In relation to land the subject of such a lease, the lessor is taken to be the body corporate and the land leased is taken to be common property on registration of the plan or notice.
