Queensland property laws set for overhaul

Posted on Friday, August 16 2013 at 1:21 PM

Property law experts have been called in to overhaul Queensland’s property industry in a bid to remove red tape and “unnecessary regulation”, according to Attorney General Jarrod Bleijie.

Bleijie has
announced the
Queensland Property Law Act 1974, Land Sales Act 1984
and Body Corporate and
Community Management Act 1997
will be reviewed by an independent

With the help of
the Queensland University of Technology, Professor Bill Duncan, Professor
Sharon Christensen and Dr Bill Dixon the review will initially examine seller
disclosure requirements and body corporate lot entitlements.

The first two
issues papers are expected to be released early in 2014.

Bleijie says the
review will streamline how Queenslanders buy, sell and manage property.

“To put it simply, property law in this state needs a
makeover and we are determined to provide a first class framework that will
meet the needs of Queenslanders well into the future,” Bleijie says.

The announcement
follows a similar review of the Property Agents and Motor Dealers Act that saw the
requirements for providing sustainability declarations deleted.
