Complexes in Tenerife are mainly (though not solely) governed by the Ley de propiedad horizontal (Law of Horizontal Division), and there are links Spanish and English versions on the Resources page. Below are some of the questions I’m most often asked.

Some questions, such as those concerning the specific percentages required for various votes, need to be answered by qualified administrators. If you don’t already have one, you could consult someone like René Campen of Hestria (website HERE), a generous adviser to this site and a qualified administrator.

Just click on any question or the + at the side to expand it.

    Yes, it’s permitted. I appreciate it won’t be applauded by foreign owners but Spanish law presumes owners of property in Spain to be in Spain and so able to make these meetings. I’m afraid that even though it’s inconvenient, owners still have the option of appointing a proxy voter to vote in their place if they can’t make the new date. Any date set in the AGM can be changed as long as people have a week’s notice.
