Does every unit complex have a body corporate? I only rented never owned a unit so never knew the in's and outs of how it worked.
and the fighting may be against BC rules but they would be evicted based on that, not on the drinking itself. but what if BC banned any consuming of alcohol due to possible noise/health/safety issues?
I've lived in quite a few as an owner and renter.
Also, pretty much anything that occurs within the land, including your own home and common property is governed by the by laws. Noise pollution will be a by law in many so drunk yelling/fighting behavior contravenes the by laws and residents are well within their rights to complain. BC have 14 days to take action and rectify the situation or they can be reported for not 'governing' the property.
I don't know if every complex has a body corporate but i rent and along with my lease came a copy of the strata by- laws.Does every unit complex have a body corporate? I only rented never owned a unit so never knew the in's and outs of how it worked.
I should say that I live in QLD and it is in my state. All community living schemes have body corporates. I think also NSW. Not entirely sure about other states.
Addicts of illegal drugs are given so much support and subsidised medications to help battle their addiction yet smokers addicted to a LEGAL substance have to pay big dollars for medications that may help them quit all because the government makes so much money on taxing cigarettes.
Yes I am a smoker, but I am also a considerate smoker and think if they want to keep banning it everywhere they should simply outlaw smoking altogether and help people fight the habit. It was cost me more for niccobate products than it does a packet of smokes and this is one of the main reasons I haven't quit as I don't have the will power to simply do it cold turkey.
As for the selfish thing. It depends, you aren't saying what you did that was selfish - did you smoke a pack a week or two packs a day? It really depends. I smoke about a pack every 3 or 4 months. An absolute social smoker only when I go out with the girls, only in the pub beer garden. I feel that is my choice to make - I quite like it, but then again - I'm not addicted either so I don't feel any kind of attachment to it other than I think its a bit of fun on a night out.
I do know that most larger places seem to have Strata set up, or large BC run by management companies.
