Common Questions and Answers
Any Lot Owner in a body corporate has the power to submit a motion or a proposal to engage and even appoint new management.
You have two options for changing body corporate management in Queensland…
- Submitting the Motion as a Lot Owner– Lot Owners can submit a motion in writing for consideration by the committee at the next general meeting. For annual general meetings, owners are required to be invited to submit motions for the agenda. However, the owner has a right to submit a motion at any time as long as it’s received by the secretary prior to the body corporate’s financial year end.
- Submitting a Proposal to the Committee for Consideration– An owner has the right to submit a proposal to the committee for an alternative body corporate company to assume control. The proposal will be reviewed and put forward to the general meeting from the committee. In this instance, however, the committee has no obligation to include the proposal during the next general meeting.

Overdue levy payments can cause delays in important maintenance, repairs and projects. In Qld, it is required that certain monies are to be paid into a Sinking fund, and that any other money received is paid into an Administrative fund which takes care of ongoing administrative, compliance and maintenance costs. See our article Administrative Fund vs Sinking Fund? for further details.
We believe that every Lot Owner should understand exactly what each of the costs are for running and maintaining the property.
Sometimes, when we have taken on a Scheme and reviewed the financial records, we’ve seen a range of cost items listed with just accounting codes - which mean nothing to anyone. They are a way of hiding costs. We take care to manage costs effectively and to provide Lot Owners with fully detailed financial records that are easy to understand. See how we ensure that Financial Management is undertaken in a professional and transparent manner.
