Tip 40 – By-Laws– Do they bind occupiers and invitees

By-laws bind all people bound by the community management statement. That typically includes all owners and occupiers for the purposes of the Act.  While tenants must be given a copy of the by-laws, neither they (and indeed some owners!) will likely make their guests and visitors aware of the by-laws.  If you’d like owners, tenants, guests and invitees to adhere to the by-laws then consider an obligation on owners and occupiers to procure compliance with the by-laws by their tenants, guests and invitees.  That way there is always someone responsible.
