AUDIT OF A CONDOMINIUM IN DIFFICULTY In recent years we have unfortunately seen more and more Syndicates in difficulty caused by a Board of Directors which does not administer its Syndicate correctly, either through ignorance, or lack of time, or worse through bad intentions and/or misappropriation of funds. Before you find yourself in government custody, contact us!
The purpose of a Syndicate audit is to verify that the Syndicate respects, among other things: the regulations in force (are we up to date with the laws?), to draw up an inventory of the building (is it has the building undergone regular maintenance?), finances (do the financial statements accurately reflect the situation?), the state of mind that reigns in the building (are the co-owners in harmony or in a state of fear / nonchalance or downright ignorance of what is happening?), is a new team (a new BoD is desired by the co-owners?) etc., and to carry out an action plan for a rectification of the situation as soon as possible; sometimes gently, sometimes brutally (case by case). If you are a co-owner and you have questions, or if you are an administrator who no longer knows how to deal with everything, contact us without obligation, we are here to help you.
LEGAL DOCUMENTS AND REPORTS Contact us for more information
March 3, 2023 – On June 8, 2021, the National Assembly of Québec assented to the Act mainly to improve corporate transparency (Bill 78). This Bill amends the Law on the legal publicity of enterprises. New responsibilities have thus been entrusted to the Registraire des entreprises du Québec (the " REQ "). On March 31, 2023, this new legislative framework will come into force and will introduce new obligations relating to the publication of information by reporting entities, including syndicates of co-owners. The Government of Quebec has thus improved the information available at the REQ, while improving corporate transparency, strengthening public protection and contributing to efforts to fight tax evasion, money laundering and corruption.
Pieces of identity
From now on, the syndicates of co-owners will have to provide a copy of an identity document for the directors in office declared to the REQ as proof of their identity and declare their date of birth. This obligation also applies to any newly elected or appointed director.
The entry into force on September 22, 2022 of Bill 64, called Law 25, entitled Protection of personal data in co-ownership has provoked several questions from the Unions and Managers. The adoption of Bill 25, An Act to modernize legislative provisions for the protection of personal information, positions Quebec at the forefront in the protection of personal information. The scope of the modernization of laws in this area meets the expectations of Quebecers as well as the challenges posed by technological advances. The changes resulting from Bill 25 promote transparency, in particular for public bodies, businesses and provincial political parties, as well as better control for citizens over their personal information. Other measures ensure better protection of their privacy, while taking into account today's technological reality.
Law 16 and Law 141
On December 5, the government adopted Bill 16, on housing, which includes numerous provisions on divided co-ownership. This bill introduces several changes, such as the resolution of conflicts, access to the register and efficiency of the assembly to fight against the disinterest of certain co-owners. The reform also introduces two new major obligations: the provident fund study and the maintenance log. Law 141 has profoundly changed the framework for co-ownership insurance. Several of its measures have already entered into force and have an impact on syndicates and co-owners. Among others are points covered; description of private portions, self-insurance fund, presumption of fault and payment of deductibles.
Building maintenance logbook
Article 1070 of the Civil Code of Quebec was amended by Bill 16 in December 2019. Article 1070.2 which was added provides that "the board of directors shall have a maintenance logbook drawn up for the building, which describes in particular the interviews carried out and to be carried out. He keeps this notebook up to date and has it revised periodically. ".
Register of renovations of the private portions and Reference unit
“638. Article 1070 of this code is amended by adding the following paragraph at the end: “Finally, the syndicate makes available to the co-owners a description of the private portions sufficiently precise so that the improvements made by the co-owners are identifiable. The same description can apply for several parties when they have the same characteristics. " and more.
