Good morning. I have recently been appointed as president of my community. I am not sure if I am obliged as the previous president left the community with a negative balance and difficult situation to afford the payments. For me, the previous presidnet should be responsible and not me. Am I obliged?
Administrator: Juan López
You are obliged. The circumstances that you explain are terrible but no reason to be exonerated of the role of President. What you shall do is to start the management by calling to all owners to a general meeting to discuss the current economical situation and options to sort the problema and afford the payments. On the other hand, if the previous president behaved negligently, you will need to take legal actions. .
