Neighbourhood disputes in company title properties

  • Author : Tiphanie Acreman - 17-11-2014

The scope of a ‘neighbourhood dispute’ under the Company Titles (Home Units) Act 2013 is much narrower than an owners corporation dispute under the OC Act.

A neighbourhood dispute can only relate to one of the eight matters listed as ‘neighbourhood matters’ in the Schedule to the Company Titles (Home Units) Act 2013. If the subject of a dispute does not relate to one of those matters, it cannot be decided by the Tribunal under the Act: Huang v Mellington Management Pty Ltd trading as Select Owners Corp Management [2014] VCAT 1436.
