Written answers (Question to Justice)

As the Deputy may be aware, the Multi-Unit Developments Act 2011 was enacted with the primary purposes of reforming the law relating to the ownership and management of common areas of multi-unit developments and facilitating the fair, efficient and effective management of owners' management companies (OMCs). These are companies registered under the Companies Acts, the members of which are the owners of residential units within the development and are established for the purposes of ownership and management of the common areas.

In relation to the Deputy's specific query, the Multi-Unit Developments Act does apply to pre-existing developments, and developments built following enactment, with particular special consideration to obligations relating to pre-existing developments outlined in Sections 4 and 5 of the Act.
