Hi All

The son of an executive committee member likes to smoke out on the rear external stairs. I've spoken to his parents but not change. How to handle this? This relationship with the other owner is already very strained.

But this is clearly annoying you.  How many lots in the scheme?

If you are in NSW, and not wishing to be sneaky, why not try to have adopted the new Schedule 3 Model By-laws from the new Strata-Schemes-Management-Regulation-2016. You need to nominate options for clauses 5 (animals) and 9 (smoke penetration). Assuming you have some now, put it up as a simple replacement to bring the latest as suggested by the new Act and Regulations.
