Key Changes To Strata Living
By Joe Vizzone
New Laws are set to come into effect in the latter part of 2014 regarding strata living which will impact on the hundreds of thousands living in strata complexes in New South Wales.
Some will welcome the changes, others will decry them as another example of “Nanny State” legislation.
Some of the proposed changes are:
*Certain pets will be allowed in all complexes;
*Smoke drift causing nuisance will be subjected ot penalties.
*Owners Corporations will be able to limit how many people occupy a lot to stem the emerging trend of dividing lots into small rooms for individual letting.
*Owners Corporation can enter into an arrangement with Councils to issue parking penalties.
