The smarter way to create, view and share by-laws for strata communities in Australia.
We’ve completely changed the way by-laws are created, reviewed, and shared within strata communities. By-laws set-up in By-Law Builder are now digital. This means you can email or text them, QR code them, or even integrate them. You can also easily update them in the future.
All of this in a modern, secure platform built by Australia’s leading strata law firm and proptech company.
How By-Law Builder works
“By-laws help guide residents and visitors on acceptable behaviours in strata communities. Well drafted by-laws can help create a harmonious, liveable community”
SHORT TERM RENTING
Our platform enables you to draft your own by-laws or choose from our wide selection of templates.
We don’t just churn out word files that are the same for everyone. Our unique workflow, merge fields, definitions and variables help develop bespoke by-laws that suit your community.
- Are animals welcome at your community? Great!
- Would you like to allow AirBnB but with some controls? We can help with that.
- Noisy floorboards keeping you up at night? We have a solution.
- Do you have parking issues at your building? We have a by-law for that.
