What are Strata By laws?

By laws are rules which an owner or occupier living in a strata complex must abide by. By laws can be changed or varied by a special resolution of the owners corporation. It is important to understand how by laws can affect your living style when considering buying into a particular strata complex.

In our experience below are “areas” which often cause issues among owners within a strata complex:-

– the keeping of animals
– changing of floor coverings from carpets to hard flooring
– colour of window coverings
– use of barbeque within court yards and balconies
– need for consent from the owners corporation to renovate, eg: installation of a new kitchen, bathroom, removal of an internal wall, installation of air conditioning.
