What is body corporate and community title living?

Community Title living is an increasingly popular lifestyle option for many people. Owners of a lot in a Community Title Scheme automatically become members of the body corporate which must elect a committee to make decisions about financial issues but not the scheme and management of a common property.

Most significant decisions must be made by owners at a general meeting. Owners are required to make shared financial and lifestyle decisions. Their relationship with others and third parties are governed by legislation designed to provide clear guidelines on their rights and obligations.
