Apartment law

Due to a significant rise in their construction, more and more people currently live in apartment buildings. As a result, apartment law is becoming more and more important in our society.  

This specific branch of the law is of a special nature. Not only because every apartment building can be considered as a miniature democracy with its own constitution (the property division deed), taxes (communal expenses) and democratic management ( the general assembly), but also because the confined living conditions often lead to complex relationships between neighbours.

Common judicial issues regarding apartment law:

  • sales deed
  • Observance and/or amendment of the co-ownership regulation and the interior regulations
  • the proper functioning of the status during the transfer of the lot
  • the division grant
  • the law on the construction of housing habitation
  • Judicial verification of resolutions made by the general assembly
  • Judicial intervention in case of silence of the general assembly
  • The functioning of the status, the interior regulations and the decisions of the general assembly against tenants and users
  • The possibility to object to the statutes and alterations made therein on the condition of transfer to public registers.
  • the insurance of the owners, tenants and users
  • the task of the syndic
  • Judiciary actions
  • the numerous formalities
  • de council of co-property
  • the implementation of a new law co-ownership
