community title

Community title (also known as communal plans) is a method of parcelling land which allows people to maintain separate ownership of their primary lease, whist having a shared interest in and responsibility for the common property.

The common land is vested in the lessees of the parcels in the scheme and is managed by a body corporate, in a similar manner a unit title scheme. Each community title scheme can have different management requirements suited to its particular circumstances. For example, different schemes may have different methods of dispute resolution or different functions for the bodies corporate. The different management requirements are registered as part of the community title scheme.
