By-Laws And Architectural Standards

Each Strata scheme has its own by-laws, which are a set of rules that govern such things as the behaviour of residents and the use of common property. The by-laws apply to all owners and residents of a Strata Scheme.

The Italian Forum Strata Plan 60918 operates under a Strata Management Statement (SMS) and a set of by-laws that are designed to facilitate the administration and harmony of the Strata Scheme. The Architectural Standard is another document that is necessitated by the cultural and architectural significance of the Italian Forum and it outlines how the external appearance of the building must be maintained.

All residents (tenants and owners) must comply with the by-laws, including the Architectural Standard in accordance with the NSW Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 or face the possibility of penalties (usually in the form of fines) issued by the NSW Consumer & Administrative Tribunal (NCAT). All residents must take all reasonable steps to ensure that their invitees also comply. If an invitee does not comply, the resident must take all reasonable steps to ensure that the invitee complies or leaves the building.
