Type of management by which a syndicate of co-owners entrusts, in whole or in part, the management of the co-ownership to a service provider, commonly known as an external manager firm.
La webradio du mercredi 15 mars 2023 a porté sur la fraude en copropriété et les mécanismes à mettre en place pour l’éviter. Une copropriété n’est pas à l’abri d’une fraude. Parmi ceux qui pourraient la commettre figurent les administrateurs, les copropriétaires, le gestionnaire de la copropriété, les fournisseurs de services et les tiers. Par conséquent, il serait sage d’observer les comportements d’éventuels suspects, afin d’y déceler des actes potentiellement frauduleux. Il ne saurait être question de mener une chasse aux sorcières dans un immeuble, néanmoins, certains signes avant-coureurs devraient susciter la méfiance et commander la vigilance. Comment identifier ces actes frauduleux et se prémunir des conséquences économiques relatives à ce type d’activité criminelle?
Your co-ownership is exposed to various types of risks, such as fire, water damage, theft and vandalism. Among these risks, there is one that is often overlooked, that of fraud. Those who can commit it are sometimes unsuspected or unsuspecting people. This is the case for the director, the co-owner, the condo manager, service providers and third parties. Therefore, it would be wise to observe the behaviour of potential suspects, in order to detect potentially fraudulent acts. There can be no question of conducting a witch hunt in a building, nevertheless, certain warning signs should arouse mistrust and command vigilance.
The manager bound to a syndicate by a contract for services does not have the same relationship with his client as the one who has the status of a salaried employee, at the end of a contract of employment. That being said, regardless of the nature of the relationship between the parties, it is advisable to specify the contract’s terms and conditions, including its obligations and its possible renewal. This will prevent misunderstandings and possible litigation.
Terminating the contractual relationship between the manager and the syndicate of co-owners requires, at all times, an evaluation of the legal and contractual parameters. A review of the various scenarios illustrating the expiration or resiliation of a contract for services.
