Access the body corporate legislation

In addition to the BCCM Act, each scheme is registered under 1 of 5 regulation modules. There are also regulations that apply to all bodies corporate.

Your body corporate

If you want to find out if your scheme is registered under the BCCM Act or what regulation module applies to your body corporate, you can get a copy of the community management statement from the Titles Registry.

You may need to use an online service provider for your search. Alternatively, you can visit or contact the Titles Registry office.

For any questions about the process, contact the Titles Registry.

Schemes that do not have a community management statement registered do not fall under the BCCM Act or the regulations.
