Hey everyone, I've been looking at townhouses in Brisbane the last couple of weekends and have noticed that many of them have onsite managers. The body corporate fees seem to be a lot more expensive than other cities due to this. So what exactly do they do for the money? I've been told for the townhouse that I'm interested in that the $4,000 odd per townhouse per annum covers maintenance (not sure what type of maintenance), insurance, pool cleaning and maintenance, and maintenance of the BBQ area. Is that all that is included? And is $4,000pa for a 20 townhouse complex with a pool reasonable (it's also a gated complex). Does it also cover rates? I thought ours did in Canberra, but I might have that wrong. And does maintenance include things like if I need some general maintenance done within the townhouse itself? The lines seem blurry to me from the few real estate agents I've spoken to. Thanks for your help.
