We now have new regulations to help Queensland unit owners who have struggled with body corporate issues, said Chris Whiting MP.

He said he know hundreds of local families each year reach out to get assistance with a range of challenging problems with body corporates.

“Living in units is a great lifestyle choice for so many Queenslanders,” said Chris Whiting MP.

“The new regulations will make it easier for these Queensland unit owners with the introduction of electronic communication, voting and video conferencing.

“Transparency will be strengthened with body corporate managers now required to disclose any commissions received before a body corporate enters any contracts, including for insurance.

“Work is also underway to establish a Community Titles Legislation Working Group.

“This group of key stakeholder representatives will provide advice to the government on a range of issues in the community titles sector so we can continue to improve regulations,” said Chris Whiting MP.

The changes were guided by a comprehensive review of Queensland property law undertaken by the Queensland University of Technology.
