At Ramsden Lawyers our solicitors specialise in all aspects of the legal issues that need to be considered by members of a Body Corporate.

When purchasing a unit in a Body Corporate complex, the seller is required to provide you with a Disclosure Statement. Before you sign any contract, we can provide you with practical advice on important issues such as the amount of levies you will be required to contribute, your voting rights and the insurance that has been put in place by the Body Corporate.
Body Corporate Disputes
If you are involved in a Body Corporate dispute, we can provide you with important information that will help you understand your obligations as well as protect your rights. The law provides that the Commissioner’s Office has exclusive authority to make orders to resolve a Body Corporate dispute. Such orders are usually final and it is therefore vital to have all the facts before making an application for dispute resolution. Ramsden Lawyers have experience representing all parties in Body Corporate and Community Management disputes and can offer you clear, easy to understand advice that will effectively safeguard your interests.
