Definition : Clerical error

An error or defect resulting in a document not adequately reflecting the intention of its author. It may be a typo, a miscalculation, an unintentional omission, a factual inaccuracy, an incomplete or erroneous text or any other fault resulting from inattention. When it affects a declaration of co-ownership, it can be corrected by the general meeting of the co-owners by the means of a resolution adopted by an absolute majority.

The rules for voting in meeting of co-owners vary depending on the importance of the decision to be made.

To do so, you must make sure that the register of co-owners is up to date, and that the compilation of votes is done according to the relative value specific to each fraction. This reduces the risk of contestation of an adopted resolution. That said, some decisions have extremely important consequences for all co-owners so the requirements in terms of majorities are then higher. For this reason, the law essentially imposes four levels of majority: absolute, enhanced, double.
