Body Corporate and Community Management Regulations – Consultation on Draft Legislation

The community and stakeholders are invited to have their say on consultation drafts of new regulations to support the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997.

The Consultation draft of the Body Corporate and Community Management (Standard Module) Regulation 2019, and supporting documents have been released for comment on the Department of Justice and Attorney-General website.

About the reforms

The Body Corporate and Community Management (Standard Module) Regulation 2019 will replace the Body Corporate and Community Management (Standard Module) Regulation 2008. It includes 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 the consultation draft 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’.
