Children running amok in a unit complex
are bound to attract the attention of other tenants.
Complaints regarding children can be targeted at those who live on the premises
or children who are visiting the complex temporarily.
"When friends come around with kids and they’re running and
screaming and diving into the pool, this can be a problem,” Ryall says.
He says children are also more likely to
go ‘door knocking’ – either purposely or intentionally knocking on other
tenants’ doors, irritating and frustrating those in neighboring units.
Depending on the complex location, Ryall
says some areas are more tolerant to issues involving children.
"If it’s a
townhouse complex in the suburbs, where there are more families and tenants
with children, they’re more accepting of the noise compared to a complex with
predominantly older residents,” he explains.
"They tried a ‘no children’ policy on Hope Island (at Queensland’s
Gold Coast) a few years ago but it was deemed freehold property and it was
placing a restriction on its use. A body corporate can't refuse
to let a dwelling to certain groups of people.”
