Smoke drift in NSW Strata buildings. What are the rules?

cigarette-butts-strataWe have written a new article about the new rules on smoking in NSW strata buildings, and what can be done to restrict smoking.

The new legislation introduced in NSW in November 2016 has recognised that smoking may cause nuisance or hazard to another person. Further, it has introduced a new model by-law (which must be adopted) regulating smoke drift.

It offers two options to restrict smoke penetration in by-laws.

Even if the Owners Corporation does not have a by-law which prohibits smoking or smoke penetration, the Owners Corporation could stop a person from smoking under the nuisance/hazard provisions of the legislation if the Owners Corporation could prove such nuisance/hazard being caused.
