Mason Sq comprises of multiple OC's and each has their own set of endorsed rules. Amongst other things, the Rules seek to ensure adequate control, management, administration, use and enjoyment of the property and its various facilities such as gym and pool across Mason Sq community.

Exceptions or Questions
Exceptions are usually granted by simply emailing (email@example.com) and alerting the Facility Manager of additional time required along with Rego and Apartment number the guest is visiting. There is no need to wait for confirmation, if the request is fair and reasonable and sent as your guest is arriving to use the parking bays, consider it granted for peace of mind for that occasion.
Carelessly discarded smoking butts can impact upon the enjoyment of our community and could also cause a fire. Like all residential complexes, Mason Sq prohibits smoking on or in the common property.
All common areas of Mason Sq are strictly non-smoking and non-vaping. You cannot smoke in the car park, lifts, lobby, terraces and courtyard to name a few.
Cigarette butts are rubbish and must be fully extinguished and put in the bin.
Dropping butts or ash is a very serious fire risk and is a breach of the OC rules.
If smoking in your apartment or on your balcony, please consider how smoke drift may affect your neighbours, including children.
If you are affected by smoke drift or discarded butts and ash, you may make a complaint to the local council. You can also ask the Building Manager/OC to help resolve the dispute with the neighbour by lodging a formal complaint. It is helpful to know which apartment is responsible for the smoke and/or cigarette butts and ash.
In the interest of all residents, Mason Sq has a policy to ensure appropriate behaviour. Laws are very clear about late-night noise affecting your neighbours.
You must keep noise to a minimum:

Residents are responsible for all the actions of their guests and any harm, damage or costs they incur.
If you are disturbed during the quiet hours, you can use the intercom at the entrance to ask you, neighbour, to stop.
You can call Victoria Police on 11444.
Taking a recording and being sure of the correct apartment making the noise use useful. Vic Police will attend and ask them to stop.
You can also contact your OC Manager or Agent to assist in resolving any disputes.
Every member of the household is considered family, even your four-legged family members.
