Definition : Conditions of eligibility

Qualification required to be eligible for the position of director of the syndicate of co-owners. A bankrupt and a person prohibited by the court from holding such office may not act as a director. The same applies, in principle, to minors and persons of full age under tutorship or curatorship. The by-laws of the immovable generally define the conditions for eligibility for the position of director. It may thus be provided in a declaration of co-ownership that this office is reserved for co-owners, while another may allow third parties to assume this responsibility.
