Top 10 of 2022

Article contributed by Smart Strata 

Welcome back and Happy New Year to all our readers. While I’m sure we are all still adjusting to writing 2023 and getting into the swing of the New Year the team here at Smart Strata wanted to follow tradition and take the time to highlight our top-read updates from 2022.


There is no denying it was a big year, from Smoke Drift Legal decisions and Flood Insurance assistance to EV charging and all the complexities that topical subject is beginning to pose in our schemes we were not short of topics for discussions.


Throughout 2022, we are proud to announce our updates were read over 700,000 times. In this article, we are going to count down our top 10 updates and provide you with a small recap on each one.

Decision-Making Timeframes

Article contributed by Commissioner of BCCM 

Timeframes are an integral part of most legislation – not just body corporate legislation – as they clarify obligations and remove the doubt that has the potential to create unnecessary conflict.
For instance, under the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008, a property owner must respond within 14 days from the date a tenant sends a request to keep a pet in their rental property. If there is no response, the property owner is assumed to have approved the request.
We often hear from owners and occupiers who feel that their body corporate has not responded to requests in a timely manner. It should be noted from the outset that this article is not intended to be an exhaustive list of every timeframe in body corporate legislation.
