The Legislative Assembly has failed to pass an Article of the law regulating the management of condominiums, under debate yesterday, according to local broadcaster TDM. With 14 votes in favour of the Article, 13 against and three abstentions, the Article failed to pass. The Article – proposing new owners be liable for debts left by a property owner relating to the property for a period of up to three years – was strongly opposed by five legislators; in particular, Legislator Leonel Alves.
The legislator noted that as it was the Article would let the “administrative body of the building not assume its responsibility of pursuing legal action against the debtor and instead ask for that debt to be paid by a third party – the purchaser […] I think this is troubling [given that the] administrative body was negligent”.
