Creekside has been in existence since 1999 and our BYLAWS were set by the developer and are mostly the exact wording of the Strata Property Act.
Our bylaws have been amended several times, and they are under constant review to meet the ever changing regulations of the BC Strata Property Act, the BC Building Code, Workplace BC and the City of Surrey bylaws.
Our web site has important links to these jurisdictions as well as quick links to areas within our website to our Bylaws and Rules. Please review them, living in a Strata is very different from living in your own home.
We have a very unique and attractive strata made this way by a community that does work well together. All of this section comes from owners who wished they knew a few things before they purchased, and after they purchased. This part is from their wish they new during the buying phase.
Misconceptions can form during the exciting buying days, dazzled by a unique Strata. To avoid these errors please study past minutes and consider having a professional inspect the interior and exterior of the home.
Top of the new owner’s list was to have several good walk arounds. Our gates open automatically between 7AM and 7PM. Strata does cover all common property, but not anything damaged by the owner or previous owners. Check the vinyl siding for damage from barbecues or garage doors for dents.
Backyard patio covers are additions to common property and not fixed or cleaned by strata.
Check the interior plumbing, furnaces, air conditioners, hot water tanks and the fireplace for evidence of proper maintenance schedules.
If you think you would like to make a change, or add something to your backyard or home, contact our Property Manager and seek his advice on the possibility of making changes or additions to your new home and backyard. In strata law, 'change' is a word Councils fear!
Take some time to study this web site. Everything about strata living and strata law can be found here. But sometimes a definitive voice is helpful. Come see us, park, walk around, ask questions.
Creekside fees are low because we have chosen to have low fees and high levies. However, legislation has demanded depreciation reports and an end to this practice is in sight.
Your backyard, and all your neighbours back yards, are under the Strata property Act, common property and hence, are all our back yards. But we do have a bylaw respecting your backyard and promise not to hold a picnic in there.

We are a fenced community. To the West is 183 Avenues, where plenty of parking exists for our visitors. The gates exiting onto 183rd and 184th, open without a key but lock automatically when closing. Entry through all gates require a key. The front gate may be opened by an owner with a key or FOB. Owners may give family members a key or Fob. Visitors must use the enter-phone and receive permission from the owner to enter. The entrance gate opens automatically by a vehicle only, every day between 7AM to 7PM.
The following is a list of questions and answers that new owners most commonly ask our Property Managers.
