Changes to strata by-laws for pets

Being faced with the choice between a beloved pet and relocating into a new strata residency can be a

very difficult decision.

Changes to by-laws arising from recent statewide reforms will mean that new strata developments will

not be able to impose a complete ban on all pets, and existing schemes are encouraged to review their

policies regarding the keeping of domestic pets by residents.

These changes are welcomed as a positive step for strata tenants, allowing people the opportunity to

keep pets securely within a strata premises.

As changes to by-laws such as this become integrated into the strata community lifestyle to reflect

modern living standards and expectations, a more enjoyable environment can be fostered for all tenants

and bring about changes in the overall perception of strata management schemes.
