Definition : Common portion - Improvement works

Work that goes beyond the mere restoration of the common portions of the immovable. It provides the immovable with a benefit that it did not previously enjoy. This is the case, for example, with work intended to modernize the immovable and providing it with elements of additional comfort. This work must:

• be authorized by the general meeting by the double majority of article 1097 of the Civil Code of Québec;

• be compatible with the destination of the immovable;

• not affect the rights of the co-owners in their private portions.
