Advisory Board – Liaising between Owners and Managers

A third party that plays a role in freehold ownership, in addition to the home owner association (HOA) and the manager, is the administrative advisory board. It is composed of three owners who tend to discharge their office on a pro-bono basis. On the one hand, it is the advisory board’s job to mediate between manager and owners On the other hand, the board supports and monitors the manager. Part of the second responsibility is specifically that the advisory board should review the budget compiled by the manager. Important to know for home owner associations: Setting up an advisory board is not mandated by law. Rather, it is up to the home owner association to decide whether it makes sense to create one. The usefulness of this institution rises in proportion to the size of a given home owner association. In case the owners do opt in favour of a administrative advisory board, the meeting of owners moves to appoint such a board, after which the board members are elected.
