Queensland Property Laws Set for Major Review

People with an interest in real estate in Surfers Paradise and around Queensland will welcome news that property laws in the state are set to become much simpler.

Attorney-general and Minister for Justice Jarrod Bleijie slammed what he saw as the "unnecessary regulation" in the area, and said that the government will review various legislation such as the Property Law Act 1974, Land Sales Act 1984 and the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997.

He planned to conduct the review with the help of property law experts from the Queensland University of Technology, such as Professor Bill Duncan.

"This review will help unlock activity in the property and construction industries that are vital to the state's economy," Mr Bleijie said in an August 15 article on his website.

"To put it simply, property law in this state needs a makeover and we are determined to provide a first class framework that will meet the needs of Queenslanders well into the future."

Mr Bleijie said he hopes that the review will make the processes of buying, selling and managing properties much easier for Queenslanders.

He has encouraged members of the community to come forward and contribute to the review, providing the perfect forum for people with Surfers Paradise property to have a say in shaping property practices in the region.
