In a recent case, NCAT has decided that a landlord falls under no obligation to ensure that their tenants comply with the by-laws in a strata scheme.
An NCAT decision allowing a lot owner to keep unauthorised renovations was recently overturned by the Supreme Court.
NSW Fair Trading modified its well known “Strata Living” handbook to indicate that by-laws prohibiting short term lettings are invalid.
What about rules that are made by a strata committee and placed on a notice board? Are they binding?
Thank you Strata for your support in 2016. As a wrap up here are some useful strata links from 2016…
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support. We’ve been busy helping communities throughout 2015, thanks to you!
NCAT recently ordered the landlord of a strata unit in Potts Point to pay compensation to his tenant for second hand smoke exposure.
