Is garage doors common property in Queensland? – Paula, QLD

Q: Is garage doors common property in Queensland?


A: It will be best to check your building format plan. Generally speaking, however, it may be likely that the garage door counts as body corporate responsibility.

This is noted in the Queensland Government’s page on building format plans, and the corresponding responsibilities relating to garage doors: any doors or windows, and their fittings in a boundary wall between a lot and the common property (including garage doors and their fittings). More information can be accessed here.

It’s worth noting the points set out by the Queensland Government are not set in stone and the rules and responsibilities may vary from body corporate property to property.
