What we do

We provide a range of information and services for those who live, invest or work in a community titles scheme in Queensland.

We are committed to giving body corporate members, their committees and industry groups' information and tools to help them better understand body corporate legislation, and to avoid and resolve disputes.

Under the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997 (the BCCM Act), we provide:

  • an information service
  • a dispute resolution service
  • a search facility to access adjudicator's orders affecting particular community titles schemes

Dispute resolution service

We help parties to resolve disputes through conciliation or adjudication.

Our dispute resolution service:

  • encourages parties to try to resolve disputes themselves through self resolution
  • encourages parties to engage in conciliation in an attempt to settle the dispute without the need for a formal order
  • decides disputes through adjudication.

We have detailed information on the dispute resolution service as well as a number of practice directions that explain different aspects of the dispute resolution process.
