Unit Title Subdivision


What is Unit Title subdivision?

This type of subdivision has the need for a Body Corporate and as such has ongoing costs and legal requirements to satisfy the relevant legislation set out in the Unit Titles Act. A lot of developments historically subdivided by Unit Title can be done under fee-simple tenure, and if we can avoid this type of tenure we will. However in some circumstances, they are the best option, particularly where there are multiple units with a lot of common areas requiring central management, and we embrace them in these situations.

Why undertake Unit Title Plans?

Unit Title Plans or UTPs (yes, we love acronyms) are usually used to show multiple units on one site, sometimes over several floors, such as apartments – especially where there are shared areas such as gardens, parking, common greens, hallways etc. These Subdivisions are done under the Unit Titles Act (and this is a bit of a can of worms if you don’t know your way around it).
