We want to renovate our investment property: a new kitchen, bathroom, carpets, paint. We have had a by-law written up but the EC keeps moving the date of their meeting and says they can’t do anything until there is a full meeting. Is this so and do we have any other options? We’ve been ready for months and they say the next meeting isn’t until May!
Thanks

The Strata Committee can’t pass a by-law – that has to be done at a general meeting so you could be facing even more delays if they finally do hold their meeting and then tell you “oops, we can’t give this level of permission.”

Tell them you need to have a general meeting (at your expense) and if they can’t give you a firm date, ask for mediation at Fair Trading with a view to seeking orders under section 232.
