Being the condominium manager like a Condo in Charansanitwong area (คอน โด ย่าน จรัญสนิทวงศ์ ,which is the term in Thai) for instance is a serious task. After all, it is a position that involves legislation, accountability, specific knowledge about administration, communication, finance, accounting issues, crisis management, technology, works and maintenance, human behavior, innovation. The list only grows. There are a series of rules and duties that the liquidator must comply with. But can you tell what the manager cannot do?
In this article, you will learn about what the liquidator cannot do as a condominium manager. Good reading!
- Manager Cannot Take Sides In Conflicts Between Residents
We know that mediation of conflicts within the condominium is generally one of the areas that cause the most headaches for the liquidators, so let’s start here. The condominium manager cannot take sides in conflicts between neighbors and must act as a mediator, an intermediary.
Even if the manager is a condominium resident, it is crucial to play the role of someone independent and impartial, always enforcing the rules of the condominium convention and the civil code.
Suppose the trustee does not feel confident in intermediating a specific conflict, or there is no way to guarantee impartiality on his part. In that case, the condominium can hire the help of a professional specialized in mediation.
- Cannot Grant Discounts To Defaulting Unit Owners
That simple. The trustee cannot grant discounts to unit owners who are late in paying their monthly contributions. This is seen as bad practice and can lead to a series of financial and legal problems for the condominium and the trustee. The only two situations in which the trustee has the right to administer discounts on overdue condominium fees are:
- When the condominium’s convention or bylaws authorize the practice.
- When the change is approved at an assembly meeting.
Despite being part of the manager’s duties as manager of the condominium, it is recommended that the manager have specialized assistance to make negotiations and collections of defaulters. In this way, the manager is prevented from taking risks in committing infractions, and the condominium receives the best possible help to avoid financial problems.
- Cannot Disrespect The Condominium Agreement
Since we were talking about her, the condo convention, let’s continue along that line. The manager cannot disrespect the condominium agreement. The manager must respect the same rules as the other unit owners, residents, and employees of the condominium community. And more than that: the manager is an example of how others should behave within the condominium due to his leadership role. If there is any point in the convention that you feel is relevant to change, remember that a new meeting must be called to debate and vote on the change. The approval quorum, in this case, is the majority of the vote in an assembly meeting with the presence of at least 2/3 of all the condominium owners.
