Keeping by-laws up to date

Well written by-laws are a cornerstone to successful community living. Most people, however, don’t see how important by-law drafting is until an issue has already unfolded.

We focus on making community living easier by helping people get the basics of strata right. Whether it’s drafting specialised by-laws or making sure they are up to date, our legal specialists offer a customer-focused and affordable way of enhancing community living by minimising risk.

Drafting and registering by-laws

All community and strata living in Australia must have by-laws or rules that are registered by the relevant state body. In most states, registration for by-laws has a specified time frame that must be met and requires accurate wording and formatting.

Generally, registration of a by-law or rule must happen within a set window of owners passing the by-law and must be consolidated.

Consolidating by-laws

Consolidating by-laws can be tricky and time consuming. The process set by government means by-laws and rule must be submitted with accurate formatting, numbering, vetting of repealed by-laws, the inclusion of previously amended by-laws, and appearing in a logical sequence.

Professional by-law drafting and registering by Kemps Petersons Legal guarantees legislative requirements and time frames are met and reduces administrative burdens.
