Many people are not aware of the implications of being part of a Body Corporate. See our summary of useful information What does being part of a Body Corporate mean?
Our Legislation section has links to all of the Legislation relevant to Bodies Corporate.
There is a wealth of information out there, but sometimes it can be hard to find. Our Useful Organisations section has links to some of the organisations (and their resources) that are of use to people involved with Bodies Corporate.
In 2016, BCCG jointly hosted a series of seminars with WCC and Inner City Wellington, looking at strengthening issues faced by residents and owners. This information is still relevant, and much of it is also relevant outside of Wellington, and to major remedial projects other than seismic strengthening.
