Registration of a by-law does not mean it is lawful or enforceable. The by-laws for most buildings were first drafted (probably from a set of precedents for a prior building) before the building was even built.

Many precedent sets of by-laws include things that are not lawful under the BCCM Act, or simply don’t fit the scheme.

We are legal experts in reviewing by-laws to make sure they fit your building and are lawful. We can also assist you in enforcing by-laws when people breach them.

Download the five most common unlawful by-laws we often see. Most buildings have at least one of these by-laws, but some have all five!

If you want help enforcing or redrafting your by-laws we can offer a choice of proposals, all on a fixed fee basis, to assist.
