07 Jun What happens if the owner’s community of my urbanisation in Spain is not properly registered? Do the rules I never agreed affect me?
No, they do not in general terms. Unless the owner’s communities are registered and the owners agree to accept the statutes, their rules may not be legally obligatory. However, specifically in what refers to the fees for maintenance of common areas & services, the Spanish courts have repeatedly ruled in favour of the right to collect such fees and their enforceability even in cases of unregistered community of owners. Whatever the case, a community without a properly registered status & legally accepted bylaw is always a latent juridical problem the owners will sooner or later need to amend through a lawyer.
