Question: During our last general meeting of co-owners, the president of the board of directors suggested to sell a parcel of land located in the backyard of our immovable. According to him, the amount that we could receive would allow to replenish the contingency fund. Can you tell me if that is possible? If this is the case, I would like to know who has the authority to make this decision.
Our last annual general meeting of the co-owners was opened and held by our directors. The trouble is that we do not know how to conduct an assembly.
Question: Is a President of the meeting required? Do non-directors have to make notes? And who draws up the minutes?
While the declaration of co-ownership of my immovable allows domestic animals in the co-ownership, the board has decided at its last meeting, to which I did not even attend, that my dog was a "harmful animal" and that it was no longer allowed in the compound of the co-ownership. They thus require that I remove it from the co-ownership.
Question: Does the board have such powers?
We are a small co-ownership and have neither the means nor the time to hold elections to appoint directors. Moreover, we have been operating very well this way for years. And before moving into this apartment, I lived in a much larger co-ownership by phases and asked myself the same question when the syndicate entrusted the management of the immovables to a professional manager: was there still a need to keep a board of directors?
Question: Are we legally required to have a board of directors?
