At the time of sale of a divided co-ownership, what to do with the special contributions?

The syndicate of co-owners can, when it is required for realizing major works necessary for the repair of the common portions and that the sums available in the contingency fund turn out to be insufficient, ask for special contributions to the co-owners.

The notary responsible for the sale of the private portion will have to ask the syndicate of co-owners if such special contributions have been approved by a general meeting or during a special meeting.

If these special contributions have been approved, but have not yet been claimed to the co-owners at the time of sale, the notary will have to inform the purchaser about same because the latter could have to face an unexpected major expense upon receiving notice of this special contribution. It is important to remember here that an unpaid special contribution, in the same way as unpaid common expenses, can be the subject of a legal hypothec (known as mortgage) of the syndicate of co-owners.
