What Is a Body Corporate?
My sister just moved into a body corporate. It's a nice gated community with a swimming pool, a club house, a tennis court, a huge playground for her kids and regular lawn maintenance. A body corporate is an association that runs a housing community. Body corporates can manage apartment blocks, town houses, double-storey villas or mixed-use apartments. Before, my sister just owned a house that she had to maintain herself. She couldn't afford a home with a pool or all the other amenities. That's why she moved into a body corporate. She gets all those amenities by paying a fraction of the cost because other people are paying for pool maintenance and the tennis court too.
If you move into a body corporate, you'll be able to have all those extra amenities. It will cost you extra on your weekly rent, so you'll have to decide if you want that.
