Requirement to comply with by-laws | Section 135

(1)  The by-laws for a strata scheme bind the owners corporation and the owners of lots in the strata scheme and any mortgagee or covenant chargee in possession, or tenant or occupier, of a lot to the same extent as if the by-laws—

(a)  had been signed and sealed by the owners corporation and each owner and each such mortgagee, covenant chargee, tenant and occupier, and

(b)  contained mutual covenants to observe and perform all the provisions of the by-laws.
