        Most committee’s members don’t seem to know where these might be, let alone have read and understood them, refer to them, nor enforce them efficiently – as required to do so by their state’s legislation. A copy should be issued to every new tenant just so they are aware, and there is no real excuses. I refer to them as Live-By-Laws which helps to understand they are primarily about neighborly relations. Used well they really do help keep the peace and enhance neighborliness.

          Do you mean a copy of this book? Or the by-laws, which have to be given to tenants in NSW?
