  • hadarusu,find a copy of the Spanish Law of Horizontal Division . I think that it will provide you with the answers.
    Failing that make an appointment with someone like Delmar who act as administrators.

  • hadarusu,
    The bible for foreigners living in Spain is called 'You & the Law in Spain' by David Searl.
    Sections on 'You and your community' 'The Law of Horizontal Property' etc. etc.

    It is distrbuted in Spain by Santana Books.

    Aldington Books Ltd.,

    Phone 0044 1233 720 123

    Reading from the book,
    The minimum length of notice to call an AGM is 8 days.
    An elected President is the only legal requirement for a Community. An Administrator is not a legal requirement although very nice to have.
    Treasurers, committees, vice Presidents etc. are all 'add ons' but not legaly required.

    AGMs can be held at any time of the year. Depending on the numbers of owners they can be held in a converance hall or on an owner's patio.

    I hope this has been of some help.
    The book is certainly a 'must have' if you live or intend to live in Spain.
    One final word of advice if you are thinking of putting yourself forward for President.......DONT!!
