svg step 1

Step 1 Draft the By-Law

Using DIY By-Laws you can easily add your lot details, select what areas you are renovating and attach the relevant plans to create a by-law and motion instantly! Your by-law will describe any impact there may be to common property (for example, waterproofing in bathroom, moving plumbing or external walls).

Step 2 Before the Meeting

You will now need to give your draft by-law and consent form to your strata manager to be included in the agenda for the next annual general meeting. If there is not one coming up anytime soon, ask your strata manager the fee to call a meeting.

Step 3 The Agenda

The strata manager will attach your motion to the agenda and be sent out to owners in your strata scheme 21 days before the meeting.

Make sure you have also given your consent form to the strata manager before the meeting.

svg step 4

Step 4 The General Meeting

Your motion will be discussed at the AGM and details will be reviewed. Then a vote will be taken by all owners attending (and via proxy) the AGM on your motion. This will be specially resolved and you will get approval or could be asked to provide changes or more detail. A majority vote will get this approved.

Step 5 Consolidation

Once this has been resolved, the new by-law needs to be added to full list of by-laws, thereby consolidating the new one with the existing by-laws.


DIY By-Laws can assist you with this step too!

Step 6 Registration

The new by-law must be registered with Land Registry Services within 6 months.

A lawyer, your strata manager or DIY By-Laws can also assist you with this step.

Step 7 Start Your Renovation!

Now that you have completed all the necessary steps you can start your renovations.

Our Clients Say…

“I found it yesterday and have now finished the draft and sent on to my Strata Manager for approval at next AGM. You have saved me a lot of money to allow me to do it myself which I greatly appreciate.”

Caroline Wood, Owner

“Easy to use & so much better priced than having a lawyer doing it. Highly recommended!”

Nicholas Coyle, Owner

“Bannerman’s DIY By-Law program was a huge help to getting our project started quickly via strata approval. Rather than spending time and money with lawyers to draft one up, we were able to very easily move through the online By-Law creation and submit it same day for approval! This is a no-brainer solution to an otherwise slow and frustrating process.”

Dean Macro, Owner

“I have used Bannermans DIY by-laws 4 times in the last 12 months and had great results. The process is simple for anyone to use and can be completed in less than 30 minutes no problems. All 4 have been successfully passed and I would happily use this service again.”

Tom Clifton, Property Manager

“I found the Bannerman’s DIY By-Laws quick and easy to use. Bannermans’ follow up offering further support was also a great part of the service. My Strata Committee wanted to make some additions to the proposed by-law, and Bannermans promptly provided a word copy to facilitate this.”

Gavin Jones, Owner
