The homeowner association’s highest authority is the general assembly. This is where decisions are made on all matters relating to the homeowner association, for example:
The annual accounts, including the payment of ordinary and extraordinary expenses
Common expenditure size
The implementation of any maintenance and improvement projects
Election of board members
Appointment of the administrator and auditor
Ordinary general meetings
The annual general meeting is held each year, typically 3-5 months after the end of the fiscal year. The fiscal year is indicated in the association's articles of association.
Extraordinary general meetings
In addition, you can hold extraordinary general meetings as needed. This typically occurs when deciding on the implementation of maintenance and improvement projects as well as through amendments to the articles. In addition, you may hold extraordinary general meetings if at a previous general assembly there were not enough attendees to make a binding decision.
We recommend that, as board members, you familiarise yourselves with the articles of association and rules of the general assembly and we recommend that new board members take part in a course on the subject. We offer ongoing internal training courses for boards.
