As for cutting off services to some owners, I don't know how you stand legally on that. Hopefully someone else can comment on that.

Hope this has been helpful. I'm aware that our community is large and quite complicated compared to yours so some of these suggestions may just not be appropriate.

We wer staying for a month at an apartment while waiting to take over a long term rental, and a note was pushed through the door which said that unless the outstanding community fees were paid by the beginning of the next month, then water and electricity would be turned off for the apartment. Fortunately we were due to leave before that date, but the owners did owe over €3000. There were other owners in the same community who owed over €5000. Not sure of the outcome, but the apartment is still advertised for rental by the same agents.

Another thing I got to find out what exactly I'll be paying for as I know there's no pool but not sure about the garden.
People who live in flats in the UK have to pay fees too, of nearly equal to the council tax in the amount or in some cases more.
I know one coulple in the UK who pay 160 pounds per month, small flat, lift and a tiny grass area, that is about it.

Triana thanks again...

My OH has the week off next week, so we'll head to the offices of the company that deals with our community and see what we can do about this penalty thingy!

Fingers crossed
