Individual membership of Unit Owners Association of Queensland is designed for individual unit owners, both inverstors and owner occupiers. It offers membership services on the level of individual ownership, as unit owners needs to deal with various aspects of owning a unit.
The annual fee:
- $65 for full membership, or
- $60 for discounted membership (offered to owners occupiers over 60 years of age or members providing email addresses for communication) plus
- $12 for adminstrative fee (one off fee for new members only).
The benefits of membership with Unit Owners Association of Queensland goes beyond the 'personal' advantages. Consider the following:
Being a non-profit volunteer community organisation, UOAQ is dedicated to improving the rights and lifestyles of people who live in units and townhouses. Our aim is to be effective network spreading useful information amongst unit owners.
UOAQ is the single organisation in Queensland representing both investment and residential unit owners only, not any other group. As a recognized stakeholder, the Association meets with Government bodies in order to effect positive change within the industry. It is also worth noting that UOAQ is the only not-for-profit organisation in the entire stakeholder group. Thus the input provided is unbiased by any vested interests and is provided to promote the quality of, and, reduce the cost of, unit living for all Queensland unit owners.
There is an enthusiastic and effective team of like-minded people as Committee Members and in our band of volunteers (see the profile of the current Executive Committee). This has resulted in valuable policies being developed and strong support being given to members, such as:
- Help Line. Referral and advice from a team with over 100 years’ cumulative experience and current knowledge of Government policy and recent QCAT and Adjudicators’ decisions.
- Membership and representation from the largest collective unit owners voice in Queensland.
