Residents could be banned from smoking cigarettes and hosting BBQs on their apartment balconies when a set of new strata laws come into effect on November 30.

The radical reforms - which include more than 90 changes to existing strata law - will affect the two million-plus people in NSW who own, rent or manage apartments. 

As part of the reforms, it will be much easier for tenants to make a complaint about their neighbour's cigarette or barbecue smoke wafting into their apartment.

Four key strata laws to know

1. Cigarettes

Residents are banned from letting cigarette smoke drift into neighbour's apartments. Fines of up to $2200 apply for repeated breaches (only enforced if owners corporation chooses to use it)

2. Keeping pets

Pets are allowed provided you tell your owners corporation or receive written permission from committee (only enforced if by-laws are chosen)

3. 'Collective sales'

With a 75 per cent majority, owners are able to push to demolish and replace their building, or update to add value to their apartment. Previous laws allowed one veto to squash any suggestions

4. Owners corporation powers

Owners corporation (body of all the owners) is now able to remove or sell goods left on common property for too long, as well as forcefully remove illegally parked cars 

Owners corporations will also be able to set up a smoking zone away from the common areas to allow residents to get their nicotine fix. 

The penalties for residents ignoring complaints have been hiked up as well, with a maximum fine of $1100 for the first offence and then $2200 for a second breach.

The smoke penetration by-laws state that 'smoke caused by the smoking of tobacco or any other substance' must not drift to the common property of other apartments.

A spokesperson from NSW Fair Trading told Daily Mail Australia that while smokey barbecues on balconies were not banned in the new strata laws, owners could vote to make their own ruling on the matter.

'Owners corporations can make their own decision about the use of BBQs when reviewing their by-laws. Changes to the use of BBQs will need a special resolution vote of owners (more than 75% of owners at a meeting being in favour of the proposed change),' the spokesperson said.

The fines will now go straight to the owners corporation rather than the government, adding incentive for the committee to follow through with complaints.

Animal owners will also be able to breathe a sigh of relief with a more pet-friendly approach to apartment living coming into rotation on Wednesday.

Residents will be allowed to keep a pet inside their apartment provided they tell their owners corporation or receive written permission, as opposed to a blanket ban that was previously enforced.

The smoking and pet restrictions come in under a section titled 'by-law reforms', meaning the owners corporation will need to choose to adopt the laws for them to be enforced.

Other key changes include 'collective sales' - meaning that with a 75 per cent majority owners can choose to demolish and replace their apartment block.

Previously it took just one vote against to veto a collective sale or renovation.

Owners corporations will also be able to remove or sell goods left on common property and forcefully move cars illegally parked on their grounds.
