A body corporate is regulated in two main ways:

  • Legislation
  • By-laws
  • What are body corporate by-laws

    By-laws are the internal set of rules, specific to each body corporate. They regulate what can and cannot happen inside the community tiles scheme, and cover a wide range of matters including:

    • Changes to each lot’s external appearance
    • Renovations of lots
    • Rules for using the shared recreation areas
    • Body corporate supplying services to residents
    • Speed limit on the shared driveways
    • Opening times of the shared facilities
    • What plants can be planted in courtyards
    By-laws are originally decided by the developer, but the body corporate has the power to change its own by-laws through a democratic voting process.

    Complying with by-laws is compulsory and they apply equally to owner-occupiers, tenants and visitors. If the by-law is unsuitable or unpopular, owners may submit a motion to their body corporate to change it.
