I live in a recent condominium (2012) of 28 homes. In this condominium there are car parks and garages, two of which equipped with Park lift. In the Condominium Regulation is indicated: the special charges for parking spaces include or are likely to include the cost of maintenance, repair or replacement of all items of any utility for the only lots concerned. This is particularly the case, without this list being limiting, and depending on the facilities that may exist, of that relating to the service roads of these lots, ramps for access or exit of vehicles, common entrance or exit doors, electric locking system, safety system, electricity relating to these parking spaces and any other consumption specific to these and provided that there are meters for recording the specific consumption relating thereto. Precision being made here that all expenses of operation, repair and replacement of the elevator type PARK LIFT, its equipment, and accessories, insurance against accidents caused by the elevator... will be the exclusive responsibility of the owner of the parking benefiting. There is only 1 meter for common areas. PARK LIFT is plugged in. ERDF does not install an additional electricity meter in the common areas as this would be overpowering if everyone had their own counter installed for their garage. One of the co-owners had a scaler placed inside his garage and at the end of the year he gave us the sum of his consumption. We have no control over its consumption and we have not checked the installation to see if it is legal. The trustee does not intervene. My question is: Do we have the ability to have this facility checked and who will pay, by whom? to pay back the money to the co-ownership is this legal and that remains you like solution if all this is not legal? Thank you in advance for your answer. I am part of the union council and want to submit the information to the next GA. Hoping to have been clear. Thanks to your show.
It is necessary to apply to the letter the regulation of co-ownership.
If there are specific counts in this regulation, they must be implemented. Then, the installation of an individual meter could be done only after a vote in AG. If it is not the case, it must be filed.
Finally, it is not up to a co-owner to decide on a possible change in the distribution of expenses. This is a cumbersome procedure, which involves an AG vote by an absolute majority, followed by an amendment to the co-ownership by an expert surveyor.
It is likely that this procedure was not applied, which suggests a certain laxity on the part of the trustee. You must therefore return to the trustee, so that it simply applies the condo rule, no more, no less.
