Condominium in Order: Learn about the Trustee’s Obligations and the Rules to be Followed

Managing a condominium is like managing a small community, and the trustee plays a crucial role in this scenario. Your responsibilities go far beyond just maintaining the physical structure; he is also responsible for maintaining order, ensuring compliance with rules and ensuring the well-being of all tenants.

In this article, we'll explore the liquidator's obligations and the main rules that must be followed to keep a condominium in order.

Some Responsibilities of the Trustee:

  1. Convene and Hold Assemblies: The trustee must convene and preside over the general assemblies of condominium members. These meetings are essential to discuss important issues and make relevant decisions.

  2. Represent the Condominium: The liquidator is the legal representative of the condominium, acting both within and outside the judicial scope. He defends collective interests and takes the necessary measures to ensure the proper functioning of the enterprise.

  3. Compliance with Rules: It is the trustee's duty to ensure that all condominium members comply with the rules established in the convention and in the condominium's internal regulations. This includes everything from coexistence issues to the proper use of common areas.

  4. Manage Finances: The trustee is responsible for drawing up the annual budget, collecting condominium fees, paying condominium expenses and providing accounts in a transparent manner.

Rules to be Followed:

  1. Condominium Law (Law 4,591/1964): This law regulates condominiums in buildings and real estate developments. It addresses issues such as the rights and duties of condominium members, administration, obligations of the liquidator and assemblies..

  2. Brazilian Civil Code (Law 10,406/2002): The Civil Code also contains relevant provisions for condominiums, such as the rights and duties of the tenants, rules for meetings and responsibilities of the liquidator.

  3. Condominium Internal Norms: Each condominium has its own rules, established in the convention and internal regulations. These norms can range from quiet hours to following the NPT - Norms and Technical Procedures, which aims to guarantee the full activity of operators and service providers.

Examples of Important Rules:

  • Use of Common Areas: Establish opening hours and rules for the use of spaces such as swimming pools, barbecue areas and ballrooms.

  • Default: Define procedures to deal with defaulting tenants, such as notifications and application of fines.

  • Maintenance and Conservation: Establish criteria for the maintenance of common and individual areas, as well as rules for renovations.

  • Coexistence: Rules aimed at good coexistence, such as prohibition of excessive noise at specific times.

  • Security: Rules for the entry of visitors and service providers, access control and use of security cameras.
