If you are renting a strata-titled/body corporate property, including a unit, apartment, townhouse or duplex,there are some extra things that you need to be aware of. These include the by-laws of the complex and areas of common property or exclusive use.
Within the strata/body corporate complex there will be areas assigned as common property. There are several standard by-laws that relate to common property that we would like to bring to your attention:
Only parking bays assigned to you can be used by you and your visitors. In some cases visitors are not permitted to park on the property. You are unable to use parking bays assigned to other residents.
Noise and disturbance
Excessive noise and inappropriate/offensive behaviour that causes a nuisance or disturbance to other occupants is not permitted under the by-laws of the complex. All occupants are not permitted to dispose of rubbish, dirt or other material in an area of common property and must also remain properly clothed when on common property.
Taking responsibility for your visitors
It is your responsibility to ensure that your visitors obey by-laws, including parking and their behaviour within common property areas. This also includes ensuring they do not disrupt other residents with noise when walking to and from the car park.
