The BC Stata Property Act includes detailed bylaws that apply to all property and operations of every condominium building.
The Act outlines the duties of owners, tenants, occupants, visitors, the corporation and the strata council, as well as the procedures at council and general meetings.
As well, the bylaws allow the strata corporatio to penalize owners who violate the bylaws. Bylaws and rules spell out the owners rights and responsibilites, and are in place to maintain a certain standard of day to day living within the complex.
Bylaws may restrict or prohibit the renting out of units in the building.
They may also restrict or prohibit pets and certain age groups.
Bylaws and rules may control the size of patios and regulate the use of the recreational facilities and other common property.
Changes in condo units such as renovations to mechanical or structural systems or exterior alterations that affect other owners will require permission from the strata corporation.
