Community or association of owners

Home / European Land Registry Network / Finland / Community or association of owners

1. Does your national law envisage that the owners of the apartments are organised in any type of association or community to take decisions about common interests in the building or block which their apartments belong to?

The shareholders of the limited liability housing company exercise their power of decision at the General Meeting, unless the power of decision has been bestowed upon the Board of Directors on the basis of legislation or the Articles of Association.

In addition, the shareholders may make a decision on a matter within the competence of the General Meeting without holding a meeting when the shareholders are unanimous.

2. In this case, does Law this association have a legal personality?

The General Meeting and Board of Directors are institutions of the limited liability company and do not therefore have a legal personality of their own.

3. Otherwise, are these matters dealt with under the ordinary regime for co-ownership, or are there special features in these cases?

See above.
