What is a special resolution of the owners corporation?

Is obtained when wording for a special resolution has been put to all owners through a general meeting or ballot of the owners corporation that requires more than 75% of all owners to vote in favour of.

An interim special resolution may be passed if more than 50% of lot owners are in favour and not more than 25% of lot owners are against the motion. Notice must be given within 14 days of the meeting or close of ballot to all lot owners of the interim special resolution, with owners given 29 days from the date the resolution passed to petition the owners corporation against passing the resolution.

The Owners Corporations Act and Subdivision Act stipulate which matters must be decided by a special resolution (e.g. to make, amend or revoke the rules of the owners corporation requires a special resolution).
