Body Corporate, Long Term Maintenance Plans & Unit Titles Act 2010

  • tWe are a Body Corporate and need some assistance
  • tI am considering buying a property in a property where there is a Body Corporate

Working with a Body Corp is one of the many things we’re expert in.

In New Zealand ‘Bodies Corporate’ have certain Legal obligations under the Unit Titles Act 2010 (UTA) and it pays to understand how they work and the legalities that surround them.

At GWE Property we understand the law relating to the responsibilities of the Body Corporate, but more than that we have experience of how to ensure these are correctly interpreted in ‘real life’ situations. We do it differently, we do it professionally and we might just save you considerable expense.

Pre Development Surveys

Having reviewed many of these we generally find that many LTMP‘s focus on short maintenance cycle activities…
