You Have a Right to Defend Yourself Against Strata Bylaw and Rule Complaints


If you are a strata property owner and find yourself in the trouble with your strata council for the breach of a strata bylaw or rule, you have a right to respond to the complaint.

Under section 135 of the Strata Property Act, your strata council must give you reasonable notice and details regarding any complaint before the strata council can take steps to enforce the bylaw or rule.The strata council must deliver complaint particulars in writing and provide you with enough time to respond, either in writing or by requesting a hearing in front of the strata council.

If you challenge the complaint, either in writing or in person, the strata council must give written notice of its decision in the matter as soon as feasible.

If you need assistance with this or any other strata matter, contact Bell Alliance.
