Government cuts away property industry red tape

THE red tape cutter has now been applied to the property industry as the Queensland Government moves to streamline how people buy, sell and manage property.

Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie has announced a review to shake up property laws which he hopes will "unlock activity" in the state's property and construction industries.

"For too long, these industries have been burdened with unnecessary regulation," he said.

"We are determined to change this, by getting body corporate policy settings right and getting rid of red tape."

The first two issue papers on seller disclosure requirements and body corporate lot entitlements will be released early next year.

Law experts, Professor Bill Duncan, Professor Sharon Christensen and Dr Bill Dixon, will head the review.

Mr Bleijie invites all Queenslanders to have their say in shaping the review.
