Body Corporate Caretaking Agreements

Can they be topped up indefinitely, or are they of a fixed length?


Management Rights Agreements in Queensland beyond 30 years, where the Accommodation Module applies, and 15 years, where the Standard Module applies, will be void regardless of acceptance by the Body Corporate.

“Unexpired Term” does not reset time.

It is not possible to top up agreements indefinitely

We have undertaken a comprehensive review of the statute. Our findings have been published in Peer-Reviewed journal The Queensland Lawyer.
