Tip 50 – By-laws – Give a copy to new owners

Don’t assume that all buyers of a lot in your community titles scheme are competently represented in their purchase.  If you become aware of a new buyer, then make sure they have provided their notification of change of details (BCCM Form 8) and instruct your body corporate manager to send them a copy of the currently recorded CMS (including the by-laws).  It’s hard for a new owner to plead ignorance of the by-laws if they received a copy from the body corporate.
