Article 1083 of the Civil Code of Quebec allows syndicates of co-owners to regroup within an association. The latter can thus pool resources for the maintenance and conservation of their immovable. By seeking strength in numbers, the united syndicates of co-owners can devise effective strategies to better cope with some common expenses and achieve economies of scale
The Civil Code of Québec grants the syndicate of co-owners extensive powers to administer the co-ownership. These powers are established on the basis of the collective interests of the immovable.They are based on four principles: the preservation of the immovable, the administration of the common portions, the protection of the collective rights and the amendments to the declaration of co-ownership.
