Company Titles (Home Units) Bill exposure draft consultation

Skip listen and sharing tools

Background

The draft Company Titles (Home Units) Bill provides the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) with jurisdiction to hear company title home unit disputes relating to domestic issues (for example, rules regarding conditions of use of the building), in order to promote lower costs and speedier access to justice.

Currently, residents of a company title building in dispute with other residents or the company only have legal recourse to the courts, often only the Supreme Court or the Federal Court.
