Body Corporate Law


A Body Corporate is the legal entity responsible for managing common property in a strata scheme. A well-run Body Corporate allows owners the benefit of cost-sharing items such as property maintenance and protects their shared interests.

However, navigating the process of establishing or modifying a community title scheme can be daunting. That’s where we step in. Our experienced team offer comprehensive guidance throughout every stage – from drafting by-laws to amending them. We can guide you on your rights, obligations and process for enforcement of the by-laws.

Our comprehensive service means that we can advise on land use or development within the scheme and the creation or amendment of your community management statement. We work with you to ensure your community title scheme runs smoothly, you have a great place to live, and your investment is protected.

Body Corporate consultation and dispute resolution

Disagreements within a Body Corporate, particularly those concerning by-laws like pet policies, noise control, and management rights, can be difficult to resolve and enforce.

From interpreting by-laws to handling disputes, we work with committees to empower members in their roles. We understand that managing a Body Corporate is not always straightforward, and for committee members, managing the affairs of the Body Corporate on behalf of members is often time-consuming.

Our experienced team is here to support you in navigating your responsibilities to protect and maintain your Body Corporate assets with strategic and timely legal advice.
