Body Corporate Levy Defaults
There are some buildings where there are a large number of owners who have not paid their body corporate levies for some time. Typically, the owner is trying to sell the apartment, and so stops paying body corporate fees. When buying, I recommend that it is good to search to see if the seller is behind on body corporate fees -- as this may indicate that the owner is desperate to sell. I would also avoid buildings where there are a large percentage of owners behind in payments. For example, there are a number of apartments in Aurora where body corporate levies have not been paid.
