[s. 42C]

        [Heading inserted: No. 58 of 1995 s. 91; amended: No. 19 of 2010 s. 4.]

1 .         Terms used

                In this Schedule —

        post-1985 company means a company referred to in section 42C(1);

        transition period means the period of 12 months after the commencement of section 43(1) of the Strata Titles Amendment Act 1995 .

        [Clause 1 inserted: No. 58 of 1995 s. 91.]

2 .         Transitional provisions

        (1)         Section 42C, as modified by subclause (2), applies to a post-1985 company after the expiration of the transition period but the company may determine by resolution without dissent that it is to apply as so modified from an earlier day.

        (2)         A by-law made by a post-1985 company and recorded on the strata plan, notwithstanding section 42C, continues in force except to the extent of any inconsistency with this Act, other than Schedules 1 and 2.

        (3)         Subject to subclause (4), a post-1985 company may determine that, notwithstanding section 42C, Schedule 2 or any provision of that Schedule does not apply in respect of the strata scheme.

        (4)         The power to make a determination under subclause (3) does not apply to any by-law in Schedule 2 if immediately before the commencement of section 91 of the Strata Titles Amendment Act 1995 that by-law applied to the strata company.

        (5)         A determination under subclause (3) does not have effect unless notification is recorded before the expiry of the transition period, in the form prescribed under section 42(4), on the relevant strata plan.

        (6)         A by-law referred to in subclause (2) has effect despite the provisions of Schedules 1 and 2, and those provisions are modified accordingly.

        (7)         Section 93 applies, with all necessary modifications, to enable —

            (a)         an order of the State Administrative Tribunal to be applied for where —

                  (i)         a strata company has purportedly exercised the power conferred by subclause (3) but has acted beyond power; or

                  (ii)         the power so conferred should have been exercised by a company but the company has failed to do so;

                and

            (b)         an order to be made by the State Administrative Tribunal making applicable all provisions or any provision of Schedule 2 if it should not have been made inapplicable by determination made under subclause (3).

        (8)         An application for an order referred to in subclause (7) cannot be accepted unless the proprietor satisfies the State Administrative Tribunal that the justice of the case requires that the application be accepted.

        (9)         Nothing in this Schedule is to be read as preventing a strata company from doing anything that it is authorised to do under section 42(2).

        [Clause 2 inserted: No. 58 of 1995 s. 91; amended: No. 55 of 2004 s. 1155 and 1156(1).]
