Manosque is a French town in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region.

As elsewhere in France, co-ownership is governed by the law of 10 July 1965 establishing the status of co-ownership of built-up properties and its implementing decrees.

In Manosque, very specific co-ownership problems can arise, such as a building without gas and electricity for two days, or unsanitary conditions that were reported in the press.

Advice from Me Zakine 5 points not to be overlooked :


  1. Local context : The state of the buildings, the population density, the dynamics of the town, the tourist area, all of these can have repercussions on the management of the co-ownership in Manosque such as the issue of accepting or refusing Airbnb or seasonal rentals, which entails amending the co-ownership regulations.
  2. Co-ownership management : Depending on the size and complexity of the co-ownership, management can be carried out by a local professional trustee or by a volunteer trustee. Me Zakine is often commissioned to assist the trustee in particular for the recovery of co-ownership charges.
  3. Day-to-day building administration and conservation issues The most frequently encountered issues often concern maintenance work, co-ownership charges, disputes between co-owners, issues relating to the general meeting, and the rules governing letting and work on lots.
  4. Specific climatic conditions Because Manosque is located in the south of France, condominiums may have specific needs in terms of insulation, water management (especially during periods of drought) or the choice of planting for communal green spaces. Choosing a conscientious and diligent syndic is therefore particularly important.
  5. Local regulations : The local council or other local bodies may have specific regulations or subsidies concerning energy renovation, insulation, accessibility, etc.
