Thank you Spanishsolicitor & Roberto
These excellent answers/information give food for thought.
The ONLY common part of our community, as I see it is the swimming pool, the majority do not seem to care whether it is there or not. But from what you are saying Spanishsolicitor the vote to terminate the commonhod has to be by "unanimous consent". Highly unlikley that this would happen - maybe a majority? therefore the minority would keep the commonhold going?
The apartments are similar to 'terrace' build in the UK Roberto, the roof is the upstairs apartments sun terrace, surely their responsibility.to maintain? as the front terrace is the responsibility of the ground floor owner. Painting/maintaining the outside fabric of each individual apartment the same?
The swimming pool? concrete and carpark spring to mind!!!!!!!!!!!!
I understand the need for such an Act if it is a multi storey building, or a gated community with extensive grounds, But struggle with the imposition in this case.
