The Commercial and Property Law Research Centre of the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is undertaking a review of Queensland’s property laws for the Queensland Government. The review includes an examination of issues arising under legislation governing ownership, use and dealings in real property in Queensland including the Property Law Act 1974 and the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997 and other community titles legislation.
Due to the breadth and complexity of property law in Queensland, the review is being conducted in stages.
