    Looking at a strata plan and it says:

    "The stratum of balconies on the ground floor extend to a height of 2.5 above the upper surface of the handstand where not covered" and "the stratum of courtyard extends to a depth of 1 metre below and a height of 2.5 metres above the upper surface of the ground floor of each lot".

    Haven't seen this before, can someone explain what it means in English?

    This is a description of what belongs to the unit ie the height to which you can put your possessions on the balcony (ie 2.5 m above the slab if you don't have another balcony above). In the courtyards you have 1 m below the surface and 2.5 m above FSL.
