From the establishment of a body corporate that serves those who are a part of it, to the governance and clarifying of body corporate rules and regulations, Davenports West can answer your body corporate need.

Our team can also give advice on weather-tightness (leaky homes) and redevelopment issues.

Compulsory Acquisition of Land

Compulsory acquisition of land is the process whereby the Government or Council takes ownership of land that is privately owned, and it’s happening more and more these days.

We will ensure you receive proper compensation and a fair market value for any disruption caused to your business or residence by compulsory acquisition.
