What are the rules about maintaining lots in an owners corporation?

In an owners corporation, lot owners must maintain any part of the lot that affects the lot's outward state or appearance, or the use or enjoyment of other lots or of a common area.

An owners corporation can also make specific rules about the external appearance of the lot.

If a dispute arises about whether a rule is legal, or whether a lot owner is complying with the owners corporation rules, either party can begin the dispute resolution process.

As Victoria's consumer affairs regulator, we help owners corporation managers, lot owners and tenants understand their rights and responsibilities.
