    Aaaah, Queensland body corporate regs, confusing one day, bewildering the next.

    Have a look at this fact sheet:

    Basically the committee can agree to common property improvements costing up to $200 per lot, unless that limit has been raised by the body corporate at a general meeting, to a cap of $300 per lot.

    Above those figures, anything up to $2000 per lot can be approved by a simple majority at a general meeting and anything above $2000 per lot requires a special resolution at a general meeting.

    An owner who disagrees can apply for dispute resolution.

    Nope. Section 108 of the Act says “An owners corporation or an owner of a lot in a strata scheme may add to the common property, alter the common property or erect a new structure on common property … only if a special resolution has first been passed by the owners corporation that specifically authorises the taking of the particular action proposed.”

    A special resolution requires 75 percent of votes (by unit entitlement) cast in favour at a general meeting.
