Member call no. 14: Dean deals with wheel clamping in his WA building

Dean is an owner in a Western Australian strata scheme. His strata council has taken to wheel clamping visitors parked in the designated visitor-parking area, should they overstay their welcome. Dean asks: does the strata company need a by-law to be able to do this? (they don’t have one). Is it legal for the strata company to require visitors to pay a fine to have their vehicle released? I answer these questions for Dean with reference to the Strata Titles Act 1985 (WA) and some interesting cases out of the State Administrative Tribunal. A valuable call for all of our WA members.

Here are the links to the articles and case:
