Hi Nigel

We have received an email today from the company that maintains the common parts of our complex, giving notice that they will cease to provide services with effect from the 31st December. No advice has been offered as to what we should do about maintenance from 1st January.

The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of the developer. The complex was completed in 2006 and we applied for our title deeds over three years ago, but they have not been issued.

I understood that the developer was responsible for maintenance of common areas until deeds have been issued. Is that correct, please?

Many thanks.

Have you seen accounts. If not demand them.

Step 2 form a committee if you haven't already got one.

Step 3 Manage the property yourselves.

Step 4 light a candle at the local church when you see how much money you're saving.

Hi Eileen

The developer is not responsible for maintaining the common parts although some of them do for a while.

You need to establish a Management Committee as described in the law that you can find at The Immovable Property (Tenure, Registration and Valuation) (Amendment) Law of 1993 Section 38 Buildings Under Joint Ownership (in English) and manage the building yourselves.

There's another document about insurance that you will find useful - Everything you Would Like to Know About the Insurance of Jointly-Owned Buildings.

Regards,
