Our litigation team has handled a huge number and variety of management rights disputes. Actions have been conducted through the Office of the Commissioner for Body Corporate and Community Management, the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal and the Magistrates, District and Supreme Courts.
We ran the first successful action under the remuneration review provisions of the Body Corporate and Community Management Act, securing for our manager client an increase in remuneration of more than 60%.
We have successfully challenged breach actions taken against managers, procured orders against Bodies Corporate in relation to invalid by-laws seeking to restrict managers’ letting activities, obtained rulings about the validity of various parts of management rights agreements, conducted successful defamation actions on behalf of managers and been involved in a myriad of other successful actions.
Because of our knowledge of the legislation with which we work every day, and our understanding of the court and tribunal procedures, we find that we are able to offer dispute resolution and litigation services at a level above, and at a cost well below, our competitors.
