Adoption of statutes for association of unit owners

(Decision of the High Court from 28 June 2016, file no. 8 Cmo 202/2016 )

The association of unit owners (SVJ) established in 2002 applied for a change of registration in the public register (modification of the statues). However, the protocol from the assembly meeting was not written in a form of a notarial deed. The court maintaining the public register therefore rejected the application.

On a collective meeting of judges of the high courts, there has been reached a unified opinion. According to this opinion, the decision on change of the statutes of the association of unit owners should be made in a form of notarial deed only if these associations were established after 1 January 2014, not before.
