We discuss a very relevant case called Hedges 252' where the Adjudicator found in favour of the lot owner who was able to change their own locks and have a unique lock for their apartment, and not be part of a master key system for the building. If you are in this situation with your body corporate take a listen as I am sure it will assist you. Here is the link to the case: http://www.austlii.edu.au/cgi-bin/vie...

Can a lot owner in a body corporate be banned from smoking altogether!

A recent case in Qld (the 'Artique' case) has been seen to be a landmark case given that the decision by the Adjudicator was in favour of a lot owner who filed a complaint that her neighbour in the apartment below her, was causing a nuisance and a hazard from persistent smoking on her balcony and the lot owner was banned from smoking. Will this open the floodgates for more cases? This is definitely a space to watch.
