Body Corporate Chairs' Group Inc.
The Body Corporate ownership model
A Body Corporate is a collective of unit owners within a multi-unit building or complex (called a Unit Title Development). The Body Corporate is the legal entity which “owns” the building or complex which your unit is part of.
If you are the owner of a unit, you are a member of the body corporate – you cannot opt out.
Most Body Corporates are governed by an elected Chair and a Committee, they are bound by the Unit Titles Act and the Unit Titles Regulations.
