Same officers for 20 years?

Question: Same officers for 20 years? I live in a community of 18 apartments on the Costa Blanca. Every year the administrator tells us we need to pay an extra €100 on top of the fees. When I ask why, he refuses to respond and has blocked my phone. The community has had the same administrator and president for 20 years. They have never been questioned.

They get work done but no one sees estimates as they always use the same company. I feel that these procedures are not correct. Is there an organization where I can find out if the administrator is in fact legal? Some owners think the president is not an owner and therefore should not be president. I. F. (Costa Blanca)

Answer: Did the members vote the surcharge of €100 at the AGM? If not the matter should be discussed at the meeting. Does the administrator have a contract? If the administrator is licenced he will be a member of the “Colegio de Administradores de Fincas” of your province. However, this is not a legal requirement. If the president owns a property this will be registered in his name at the Spanish Property Registry.
