Key information

  • Strata tenants must comply with a scheme’s by-laws, which set out how the strata titles scheme is run and the expected conduct of all the people who own, live in, and visit the strata property.
  • It’s important that you have a copy of your strata scheme by-laws so that you understand what’s expected of you as a tenant.
  • If you experience a dispute as a strata tenant concerning the scheme by-laws or a resolution or decision of the strata company that directly affects you, you can initiate a formal dispute resolution process via the State Administrative Tribunal, though parties are encouraged to resolve it themselves in the first instance.
