Like anywhere else around the world, owning an apartment in Brisbane is a lot different and more complicated than having a house. When you buy a house, you are also buying the land where it is built. More technically, you are actually buying a piece of land and the house, the trees, the mines and minerals, and other improvements built on it. You have absolute right to everything on, over, and under – within the boundaries of the land. That is not the case with apartments.
