OMB Solicitors is an established Property Law firm on the Gold Coast and has been dealing with different variations of community title law since the 1980’s.
With the increasing move towards higher density living, there are more and more bodies corporate coming into existence every year.
OMB Solicitors has a dedicated team of Solicitors to service the needs of these bodies corporate.
The longevity of OMB Solicitors is proof of its commitment to provide professional, efficient and accessible legal services to all our body corporate clients. We achieve this by old fashioned personal service focusing on the ways in which we can assist the Body Corporate Manager to guide their bodies corporate through the interpretation of the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997 (the application of such legislation changing regularly depending on the latest judicial position).
OMB Solicitors can assist you in how to best advise your bodies corporate by attending committee and general meetings with you to deal directly with the scheme’s legal issues.
The advantage of our body corporate team is its expertise in understanding not only the law applying to bodies corporate but also the role of the Body Corporate Manager and the day to day operations of a Body Corporate.

It is imperative bodies corporate ensure that all lot owners pay their levies when they fall due. A failure to do so places a financial burden on the Body Corporate as well as your diligent levy paying neighbour.
OMB Solicitors are experienced in dealing with non-paying lot owners and (as a result) we are pro-active.
ASSIGNMENT OF MANAGEMENT RIGHTS
In the Body Corporate industry, it is commonplace for bodies corporate to enter into a series of contracts that provide for the care and maintenance of the common property and to also grant the exclusive rights to conduct a letting business.
Collectively these agreements are referred to as Management Rights. We are often surprised when we first meet with a Committee of a Body Corporate that is experiencing difficulties with their Caretaker and they inform us that they did not obtain legal advice or have anyone represent the interests of the Body Corporate when the Management Rights were last sold…..
