Spanish Community Law
When you own property in Marbella, or anywhere else in Spain, you will acquire certain obligations -as you do in any country. When it comes to unravelling the intricacies of the "system", Spain can be extremely frustrating to foreigners and locals alike.
If you are a property owner here in Marbella, you will definitely have had - or will have in the future - personal experience of some of these problems.
Community Meeting Attendance All owners are required by Spanish law to become members of an owners community under the ley de la comunidad. The urbanisation or community then levies fees, agrees a budget, and appoints an urbanisation committee which manages the activities of the community. Owners can vote to elect this committee, as well as on major budget issues at an Annual General Meeting. Sometimes it is not convenient for you to attend such meetings - in which case you can vote by proxy.
We act for certain owners in attending such meetings, where they are unable to attend, or cannot understand the language of the meeting. The only legal requirement of the language of community meetings is that they should be conducted at least in Spanish - other languages are optional and subject to AGM approval.
We attend in their place, so that their views can be represented, and they can have trusted feedback on the issues of the day. Often one or more of these issues are vitally important in relation to an individual's property.
