Body Corporate Issues

Particularly in the Gold Coast/Tweed region, unit development has been and continues to be increasingly popular. However, an increase in this type of development has also caused an increase in body corporate issues, concerns and disputes.

Being involved in a body corporate is sometimes a complex task involving a wide range of legal issues. It is important that you know and understand your rights and obligations if you are involved in a strata scheme.

Common body corporate issues encountered include matters pertaining to:

  • By-laws;
  • Exclusive use areas;
  • Usage of common property;
  • Contribution and interest entitlements and requirements linked thereto;
  • Repairs and maintenance;
  • Disputes with neighbours, other owners or the body corporate committee;
  • Insurance and liability;
  • Body corporate managers;
  • Body corporate meetings.
