Commonhold Property – Jointly Owned by all Condominium Owners

The commonhold property comprises the plot and all those parts of the building not held in individual freehold ownership. This means specifically all building elements that are necessary to ensure the intact state and safety of the house, including e.g. the exterior walls, the roof, the foundation, and the stairwell, but also the windows and entrance doors. Facilities and equipment jointly used by the condominium owners are also considered commonhold property. While including parking and green areas, these may also cover things like a swimming pool. All of the condominium owners share in the management of the commonhold property along with the costs for its upkeep
