About the reforms

The 2019 Accommodation, Commercial, Small Schemes and Standard Regulation Modules will replace their corresponding 2008 regulations. The existing Specified Two-lot Schemes Regulation Module will be amended. The new and amended modules include reforms to streamline and modernise body corporate procedures, reduce body corporate costs and enhance protections for unit owners.

The reforms were developed following extensive stakeholder and community consultation on the recommendations of the review of property law in Queensland conducted by the Commercial and Property Law Research Centre of the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) for the Government.

The reforms included in these consultation drafts relate primarily to the review’s recommendations about body corporate procedural issues, which were contained in QUT’s report titled ‘Final recommendations: Procedural Issues under the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997’.

The Body Corporate and Community Management Regulation 2019 will replace the Body Corporate and Community Management Regulation 2008. It will contain the same fees as the existing regulation, but expand the power of the Commissioner for Body Corporate and Community Management to waive particular fees under the Act.
