The legislation in each state provides an owners’ corporation the power to levy contributions from its members for the discharge of its duties and for the maintenance and management of the common property. Landlords may choose to pass these levies on to their tenants if they wish. However, standard practice is for the landlord to pay these amounts.

Legislation in all Australian jurisdictions requires an owners’ corporation to keep records of its operations for inspection by a proprietor, mortgagee, or other person.
