I have signed a private contract weeks ago with thirds to agree they will purchase the apartament. However, we wont go to the notary for compeltion until 8th of January. Am I obliged to pay the community fees for this current month?

It is necesary to complete totally the sale of the property before being exenorated of obligations. A private contract is just a commitment of both parties for the completion agreed in a short future. However, the normal way of taking over a possesion is with a title deed. This is called traditio fictia (falso delivery) In the meanwhile, the actual owner is the last registered. Therefore, you will be obliged with the community as you will have vote and voice as co-owner, until the completion.
