Community urged to have its say on community titles schemes

Activity occurred prior to the current government.

The Department of Justice and Attorney-General is seeking public comment on the laws governing how body corporate expenses are shared between owners in community titles schemes.

The Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997 provides for most body corporate expenses to be divided between owners in proportion to the lot entitlements allocated to each lot.

The Department has released a discussion paper, Sharing Expenses in Community Titles Schemes, to inform the community about the current system for setting and adjusting lot entitlements and encourage public discussion and comment about the system.

Owners in community titles schemes and other interested individuals and organisations are invited to make written submissions on the discussion paper.

The closing date for submissions was 28 February 2009.
