Q: At a recent committee meeting the strata committee resolved to change the by-laws to allow the committee to take over responsibility for front and back gardens on all terrace level lots (lower level makes up approx 25% of the unit entitlements).
All lower levels have terraces that are visible from the upper levels. A Current by-law identifies level 1 garden maintenance as the individual lot owners responsibility. We recently bought the property under this impression.
Question: can the committee resolve to change a by-law without an AGM or EGM? Shouldn’t they first investigate costs and provide some basis of justification?
