By-laws are enacted for the purpose of controlling and managing the use of common property, as well as your unit. By-laws are generally made in relation to safety and security, such as restricting the use of any common property, the keeping of pets, parking, garbage disposal, and may even restrict behaviour such as swimming or making of loud noises after a certain hour etc.
For a newly constituted Management Corporation (MC), the Management Corporation (MC) may consider converting house rules to by-laws at the first annual general meeting (AGM).
If you are concerned about the validity or appropriateness of the management corporation’s (MC’s) by-laws, you may raise it for discussion at the next general meeting or apply to the Strata Titles Board (STB)
for a resolution. The Management Corporation (MC), any unit owner (i.e. subsidiary proprietor ‘SP’) or any occupier is also entitled to apply to the Strata Titles Boards (STB) or to court to enforce a by-law or restrain the breach of a by-law.
