Strata / Body Corporate Law

Helping to shape the legislative landscape in Queensland

Our client-focussed team, led by Andrew Suttie, has decades of experience providing advice to body corporate committees and lot owners on all aspects of strata law.

When a building manager seeks approval to sell its business, we guide the committee through the process to ensure the transition proceeds smoothly – with our assistance, not only will the new building manager hit the ground running; the body corporate’s interests will be preserved to the full extent of the law.

Where caretaking and letting agreements are proposed to be amended or extended, we provide strategic advice to enable the committee to negotiate on its own terms. Changing the contractual relationship between the building manager and the body corporate can have significant and lasting implications and should not be considered lightly.

The by-laws for community titles schemes often fall short of efficiently regulating activities and behaviour for the benefit of the residents. We review by-laws to ensure they are compliant, valid, relevant and simple to understand.

Our Litigation team has significant experience assisting in dispute resolution proceedings at the Commissioner’s Office and at QCAT, as well as enforcement proceedings at the Magistrate’s Court.

We are passionate about strata law and committed advocates for the wider strata industry, presenting and publishing regularly.
