I live in a large apartment block. I have made a couple of submissions to the Strata managers (who then passed them onto a Body Corporate meeting). I referenced the case in October when the By-Laws were overturned but they said that was just one case. Twice I’ve been refused. The reply to my second submission was a letter to all owners reiterating that The owners Corporation has no authority under the present By-Laws to allow any pets in the building unless it is a trained Assistance Dog.
I’ve ben in touch with the Law Society who were very helpful and I finished up receiving a phone call from a Solicitor. He says they can’t stop me having a small pet (I already told the Strata people that it would be a tiny dog and that I would be very respectful of all other tenants and would carry it in a waterproof basket in any of the common areas) and that he would help me.
I’m waiting for him to send me a form now for me to sign to start the Mediation/Tribunal process, but I’m still waiting and wonder if there is a quicker way to go about this. The solicitor said it could take some time because there will be a huge backlog.
I’m wondering if I could ask them what has to happen to change the by-laws but I’m guessing if it’s an Owners Corporation decision, then they would have to send a letter to all owners on the subject asking them to vote, and I’m pretty sure most of them will say no.
Is there any way I can fast track his? . if it’s going to take a long time, or not happen at all, then I will get my apartment on the market and move to where I can have a little dog, which would be a huge upheaval.
