Modernised Body Corporate regulations to commence in March 2021

Published:

The Palaszczuk Government has finalised a modernised set of body corporate regulations which will deliver important benefits for Queensland unit owners.

Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Yvette D’Ath said the regulations were the result of widespread industry consultation and follow a property law review undertaken by the Queensland University of Technology (QUT).

To assist stakeholders with the transition, the new regulations will take effect from 1 March 2021.

“The new regulations streamline and modernise body corporate procedures, reduce body corporate costs and enhance protections for unit owners,’ the Attorney-General said.

“These are important outcomes for unit owners and the regulations have been guided by a comprehensive review carried out by QUT.

“We’ve worked closely with stakeholders on the regulations which we believe have strong support from industry and Queensland unit owners.”

The regulations:

  • facilitate electronic voting and attendance at meetings, including the use of ‘live’ electronic voting and remote personal attendance by teleconference/videoconference;
  • facilitate use of email and other forms of electronic communication for the exchange of information and documents within bodies corporate;
  • clarify and improve the list of documents that original owners (developers) must provide to the body corporate to facilitate effective governance of the scheme; and
  • encourage early identification and remedy of building defects by requiring a body corporate to consider a motion to prepare a defect assessment report at its second annual general meeting.
