Community Titles Reforms in Queensland: A regulatory panacea for commercial, residential and tourism stakeholders
MetadataShow full item record
The economic, environmental, social and political significance of community titles schemes is on the rise culminating in important changes to the laws governing community titles schemes in Queensland. Recent amendments to the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997 (Qld) were designed to maintain the flexibility and balance of rights between stakeholders with an interest in community titles. This paper outlines the community titles legislation following the recent changes. The paper will also examine some of the new measures designed to balance the interests of the original developer and subsequent lot owners, those of different types of lot-owners, and those between the body corporate and service contractors. The paper also briefly considers the need for the development of a new Regulation Module to specifically enhance tourism.
