I've just bought an apartment off the plan. I was told 2 years ago at sale that the body corp fees would be $3700. I was not told otherwise until the day of settlement and the fee is now $7500. The owners corp structure is one for the complex, and one for my building. I contribute $5,000 odd to the complex and $1700 to my building. We are all surprised at the fees. We are also surprised to learn that the developer owns Quest apartments on the site, along with a café. He has made all parking visitor only, unless there is a car park attached to the lot, and he has an agreement with council to fine residents parking there. He gets a % of the fine. … read more
