The convenience of medium and high density living has proven popular in recent decades. At least one quarter of Australians live or work in subdivided owners corporation property. The number of subdivision developments continues to grow and the number of lots per development continues to increase. The challenges presented by that growth are intensified by the mix of purposes and use which apply to subdivisions. The legal and administrative functions and duties of Owners Corporations are unique and require expert legal skills and industry focus.
