A management rights business most commonly refers to the combined business of providing care taking and letting agent services for a body corporate complex. Usually, a management rights business will include:

  1. The right to provide care taking services, for which the manager is paid a salary by the body corporate;
  2. The right to provide onsite letting services, for which the manager earns a commission or charges a fee from individual lot owners who engage the manager’s services; and
  3. An onsite letting office, or caretaker’s unit.

Management rights businesses are a popular investment as they can allow an investor to combine a home and an income, as well as investing in a sale-able business.

The purchase and sale of Management Rights in Queensland can often be a complex area of the law, requiring compliance with a range of legislation that is often confusing for many people.

Our team has acted for clients who have bought and sold Management Rights throughout the state and interstate as well. We also act for developers in preparing the initial management rights documents as part of a unit development, including very large accommodation providers. We handle all aspects of a management rights transaction and often other areas such as liquor licensing, leasing, the sale of real property and employment law must be considered in the transaction.
