"New guide to unit titles available
Are you buying an apartment or townhouse for the first time? Not sure what a unit title is or how to deal with a body corporate?
Then you need to download a copy of our new booklet, Short Guide to Unit Titles and our pocket card, Buying an Apartment? Know your rights!
Unit titles are a type of property which is made up of privately-owned units and jointly-owned common areas. Apartments and townhouses are the most common types of unit title properties.
The publications were produced to provide basic information about unit title properties to people who are entering the market, as well as to those who already own unit title properties.
The booklet and pocket card can be found on the About Unit Titles and Body Corporate page on the MBIE Website.
