CLEANING REGULATIONS INPROPERTY OWNERS COMMUNITIES

When you are going to live in a community of neighbours there are many rules that must be taken into account. In this post we are going to talk about the main particularities of the cleaning regulations of the community of owners, something fundamental.

CLEANING THE STAIRCASE IN THE COMMUNITY OF OWNERS: WHO IS OBLIGED TO PAY THE COSTS?

As long as 3/5 of the community of owners have agreed to pay a cleaning company, all the neighbours who have a property in the same building will have to assume these expenses.

Even if some neighbours have shown their disagreement with this expense, if 3/5 of the neighbours have agreed, the expenses will have to be assumed.

The cleaning of the common areas is regulated in the law of horizontal property, being understood as a service from which the owners of the Community benefit.

CAN A NEIGHBOUR TAKE CARE OF THE CLEANING OF THE COMMUNITY OF OWNERS?

As long as we are talking about an owner of the Community, it will not be necessary that there is any contract or link. However, there cannot be a remuneration, because then it will be understood that there is an ordinary labour relationship and it will be compulsory to register with the Social Security.


Only one owner can be in charge of the cleaning of the staircase of the Community of Owners, or it can be done in shifts.

If a neighbour takes care of the cleaning of the staircase and is not registered with the Social Security, he/she would be committing a tax offence and would be liable to a fine.

If there is any problem with this issue, or with any other that concerns the Community, we recommend our services as property administrators.
