Buying into an owners corporation
If the property is part of a subdivision with common property such as driveways or grounds, it may be subject to an owners corporation. You may be required to pay fees and follow rules that restrict what you can do on your property, such as a ban on pet ownership.
For more information, view our Owners corporations section and read the Statement of advice and information for prospective purchasers and lot owners (Word, 53KB).
