Associations of unit owners (SVJ)

The association of unit owners (SVJ) is a legal entity providing management of buildings divided into legally separate parts (units) and relevant plot.

SVJ may not do business, it can only acquire property and dispose of it for the purposes of house and plot management.

The building is divided on the basis of the expression of the will of the building owner. The document on this division (declaration, agreement of the co-owners of the building or construction contract) is stored in the collection of documents of the Real Estate Cadastre. At the moment of division of the building, the units become a separate subject of rights. It is possible to handle them separately and alienate them (transfer them to another person).

Establishment of SVJ

There is no legal obligation to establish a SVJ. The founders establish the SVJ on the basis of voluntary legal action by approving the statutes, which take the form of a public deed, ie a notarial deed. The establishment of SVJ dates to the date of its entry in the public register.

Statutes of SVJ

The statutes of a SVJ contain:

  • Name containing the term "Association of unit owners " and the designation of the house for which it was established
  • Seat, in the house for which the community of owners was established, or elsewhere
  • Membership rights and obligations of homeowners and how to exercise them
  • Designation of bodies, their powers, number of members and their term of office, method of convening, acting and resolutions
  • Appointment of the first members of the statutory bodies
  • House and land management rules and rules for the use of common parts
  • Rules for creating a budget, for contributions to the administration of the house and the method of determining how much the individual owners will pay

SVJ bodies and meetings

The statutory body of SVJ is the committee. The statutes may also stipulate that the statutory body is the chairman of the owners' association. According to the statutes, the SVJ may establish other bodies, which, however, do not have the competence reserved for the meeting of owners or for the statutory body.

The highest body of the SVJ is the assembly. The Assembly consists of all the owners of the units and each of them has a number of votes, which corresponds to the size of its share in the common parts. The assembly is eligible for a resolution if the unit owners, who have a majority of votes, are present. Unit owners may make decisions outside the meeting in writing or by technical means (electronically), if permitted by the statutes.

The statutory body convenes the meeting at least once a year. It may also convene an assembly at the request of unit owners who have more than a quarter of all votes.
