Statutes of Communities of Owners
Usually, it is almost often the case, the developer is the one making the rules, in order to avoid escalation of debates between dozens of residents. These laws are regulated by the community, for the community.
Meetings & moments of discussion that a conversation between all residents is held is decided by the community, also. Our offices of Mercury SLP, for short, abide by the bylaws that are in place. It is not uncommon to have cases of bylaws disregard to its authority that are attached to other bigger cases that are unrelated to the bylaws.
Bylaws have a purpose, that purpose is to ensure everyone maximizes use of their community & its benefits in a way that is harmless & a way that is beneficial to those making a living off of the community.
It is a chance for those in managerial positions to showcase their worth, as the structure is managed internally & only by residents & users of office spaces inside the community.
