Body corporate laws to be overhauled

Posted on Wednesday, March 20 2013 at 2:02 PM

Legislation governing body corporate schemes and strata-titled dwellings will be reviewed and overhauled, the Queensland Government has announced.

Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie yesterday confirmed the Body Corporate and Community Management Act is next on his legislative reform hit list.

The government has been working its way through a wider rethink of property-related laws and recently flagged a re-write of the Act overseeing residential real estate transactions.

Bleijie says the review of body corporate laws will incorporate a number of Acts and shape the future of property law in Queensland.

“Public consultation and input will feature as part of the legislative review and the terms of reference, and review processes will be announced shortly,” he says.

“As part of the broader review, we’ll look at how body corporate schemes are determined, community management schemes, dispute resolution and response to the review of management rights.”

The aim would be to reduce red tape, regulation and property law duplication, he says.
