Queensland’s Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997 (BCCMA) is the legislation that governs the operations and management of body corporates in Queensland. The act was designed to provide a framework for the effective administration of community living, promoting harmonious relations between lot owners and ensuring that properties are maintained to a high standard.
Body corporates are a common feature of Queensland’s property landscape, with many apartment buildings, townhouses, and gated communities governed by these entities. Body corporates are responsible for the management of common areas, shared facilities, and amenities, as well as the enforcement of by-laws and regulations that ensure the orderly and peaceful operation of the community.
The BCCMA is a comprehensive piece of legislation that covers a wide range of topics related to body corporate operations, including the establishment and registration of body corporates, the duties and powers of the executive committee, the preparation and management of budgets, and the conduct of general meetings. The act also provides guidance on dispute resolution and enforcement measures that can be taken in the event of a breach of the legislation or by-laws.
