Shared Amenities Agreement


Typically, agreements contain a cost-sharing formula, create a specialized board of directors that presents budgets to pay for joint approvals, and establish voting rules and dispute resolution procedures. In most cases, they are executed by developers on behalf of condominium companies that are not yet registered. These condominiums then take over the developer`s obligations, after being registered at a time when the developer controls the board of directors (and before the “revenue meeting”, the meeting at which the directors elected by the owner take the board of directors). These shared amenities agreements are sometimes referred to as “common use agreements”, “fund and cost sharing agreements” and “mutual use agreements”. Generally speaking, they share the cost of one or more specific commodities between condominium companies or between one or more condominium companies and a non-condominium portion of the development. You are motivated by the desire to reduce costs – why build three pools for three buildings, when a larger community pool is enough? Common amenities agreements contain provisions that define the operation of common equipment. Owners and buyers relied on the creation of access and a working agreement for the provision of equipment in progress. Some agreements also include non-amenity types of services and facilities, such as common ramps, fire outlets, stairs and many other such issues that can be critical to the operation of one or more phases of development. The termination (or modification) of these agreements can therefore have very serious consequences for the other parties.

If there is agreement on common institutions, it means that there is a long-term relationship. This is reason enough for the parties to be reasonable. Too often, unfortunately, this is not the case. Any party to the joint entity agreement may, for any reason, denounce the agreement in writing to the other party within a period of six months. If BioTime`s staff is not sufficient to meet both BioTime`s needs and ours, we need to recruit additional staff, full-time or part-time, as employees or consultants, and the cost could be higher than BioTime would be allocated to us. In some municipalities, it is often a good idea to extend what is considered shared, in order to ensure uniformity and consistency with regard to maintenance and repair standards and renovation projects and to benefit from economies of scale.. . .
