QLD Have Your Say

Body corporate reforms up for discussion

The Palaszczuk Government has called for public submissions on an independent report setting out 29 recommendations on body corporate by-laws, debt recovery and community titles scheme terminations.

Queenslanders have until 5 May 2017 to have their say on the Government Property Law Review report, prepared by the Queensland University of Technology (QUT).

“Before considering any changes to the current laws, the Palaszczuk Government wants to hear people’s views on QUT’s recommendations,” Mrs D’Ath said. 

“These include improving the ability of bodies corporate to make and enforce by-laws dealing with vehicle towing, pets and second-hand cigarette smoke drift between units."

The full media release from Attorney-General and Minister for Justice and Minister for Training and Skills
The Honourable Yvette D'Ath can be read here

The report and information on how to make a submission can be found here.
