What are strata by-laws?

By-laws are a set of rules that govern such things as the behaviour of residents and the use of common property. The by-laws apply to all owners and residents of a strata scheme.

A strata scheme usually starts with a standard set of by-laws and over the years the owners corporation adjusts, revokes or adds new by-laws. Check your scheme’s Certificate of Title to see what by-laws are registered for your strata scheme.

By-laws cannot be created if they:

  • conflict with existing laws
  • are ‘harsh, unconscionable or oppressive’
  • stop someone from selling or leasing their lot (except in some cases of short-term rental accommodation)
  • ban children from the strata building
  • stop someone having an assistance animal
