Definition : Successor and Assign

A natural or legal person who acquires or obtains the rights and / or obligations of another person named the "author" (e.g., the buyer of an apartment). Remember that the declaration of co-ownership binds the successors and assigns of the co-owners and produces its effects upon them, from the date of its registration.

The declaration of co-ownership is binding upon the co-owners and, in principle, on the occupants and tenants of the immovable. It is the responsibility of the Board of Directors to enforce its content. By failing to do so, the members of the Board may, in some cases, be held liable toward the co-owners. Anyone who does not respect it is exposed to legal proceeding based in particular on article 1080 of the Civil Code of Quebec. This action may be brought by both a co-owner and the syndicate.
