Consultation on proposed changes to the Unit Titles Act 2010

Submissions closed: 03 March 2017, 5pm


The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is seeking your feedback on proposed changes to the Unit Titles Act 2010 (the UTA). The UTA is being reviewed to ensure that the law that regulates unit titles developments is functioning well and is fit for purpose for a growing market. The consultation is targeted at reform proposals that relate to:

  • Improving the disclosure regime;
  • Strengthening body corporate governance provisions;
  • Promoting professionalism in body corporate management;
  • Ensuring adequate Long term maintenance plans and funding; and
  • Accessibility of the disputes resolution processes.

We are also seeking feedback on a proposal to introduce unit title complex size thresholds which would trigger different levels of legislative requirements.
