We represent a community of 54 owners living in 6 blocks with common areas and community expenditures that cannot be divided. Some months ago, the owners of my block have been demanded by a neighbour of another block due to some repairs we had done in our building. We requested the payment of the bill to the community and the neighbour complaints because the works affect only our block. The sentence is favourable to us because the Statutes confirm that we all are one community. Since then, the owners of that block are collecting the community fees in a separate bank account and then they transfer just the money to pay the bills into the community bank account. Shouldn´t they pay a monthly fee that corresponds them to pay as approved in the AGM and agreed in the common Budget for all owners?

Good morning. I bought an apartment in Murcia one month ago. This month I received the water bill of the previous owner. The amount is not too high but belongs to a timeline before the completion of the property. I don´t think I must pay it. I would like to know if you recommend paying the bill as I don´t want to have the supply cut off.

Our advice is to pay the bill as you confirm that the amount is not high. After then, you may try to get the refund from the previous owner (as you have not consumed that water). The most important is to pay the bill as the water company is not interested in who used the property in that period. They just read the meter and if the bill is not paid, they will simply cut the supply off.
Good afternoon. On last month, in an Extraordinary meeting, the community approved an extraordinary levy for the ristpration of the facades. The existing balance was used to pay the proportion corresponding to what the debtors had to pay for that. On the other hand, the community is expecting a refund because a demand that we submitted. I would like to know if this refund could be paid back to the owners who have alerady paid the levy.

The community can choose how to use that money. You only need the agreement in a general meeting.
However, notice that if the community decides to share the refund out among allowners, debtors cannot be excluded. A different issue is that the community initiate legal actions against debtors.
