Property law review: Recommendations on body corporate governance issues

The Commercial and Property Law Research Centre of the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) has considered a range of body corporate governance issues, including by-laws, debt recovery and scheme termination, as part of a broad review of property law being conducted on behalf of the Queensland Government.

QUT has made 29 recommendations to:

  • improve the ability of bodies corporate to make and enforce by-laws dealing with issues such as the towing of vehicles, the keeping of pets, and nuisances created by second-hand cigarette smoke drift between units
  • improve the ability of bodies corporate to recover unpaid body corporate contributions from lot owners
  • facilitate the redevelopment of ageing and uneconomic community titles schemes.

Before making any decisions about possible changes to the body corporate laws, the Queensland Government would like to hear community and industry views about QUT’s recommendations.

QUT’s recommendations on by-laws, debt recovery and scheme termination and information about how to make a submission are available on the Department of Justice and Attorney-General website.
