Strata By Law Services

Providing legal expertise at an affordable price for strata managed properties

Every strata property needs well written, up-to-date by-laws or building rules. PICA Group offers an affordable way for strata owners and committees to minimise risk with our by-law drafting, updating, registering and consolidating service.

How our by-law drafting service works

By-laws are the rules that residents and visitors must follow regarding their behaviour and the use of common property in a strata community.

They are the cornerstone of successful community living, providing clear guidelines for tenants on what they can and can’t do and protection for owners and committees from disputes and litigation.

Many strata owners don’t realise just how important by-laws are until an issue has already unfolded. At PICA Group and Kemps Petersons Legal, we encourage everyone to regularly review their by-laws and to update or amend them as required.

To that end, our legal specialists offer a customer-focused and affordable by law service that includes;


Our experts will draft your by-laws, making sure that they are fair and reasonable and are not discriminatory or contrary to existing law or public policy.


If a by-law is no longer relevant due to changes in legislation (i.e. the changes to laws regarding short-term letting in NSW), we can update or amend your by-law to reflect this change or create a new by-law to take its place.


We will then register your by-laws with your relevant state or territory body, being sure to do so within the specified time frame and using accurate wording and formatting.


Your by-laws must then be consolidated; a process that can be complex and time-consuming if not handled by professionals. For example, your by-laws must be submitted with accurate formatting, numbering and vetting of repealed by-laws and include previously amended by-laws appearing in a logical sequence.

At PICA Group and Kemps Petersons Legal, our by-law drafting, updating, registering and consolidating service reduces administrative burdens for strata owners and committees and guarantees that all legislative requirements and time frames are met. Whether straightforward or technical, we have your by-laws covered.
