To Consider:

Knowledge without justice ought to be called cunning rather than wisdom.

The issue of theft of electricity was brought up by representatives of property owners at the latest community meeting on 13 April 2019, but it was never mentioned in the Minutes (“Acta”). Photo evidence of illegal connection was presented too. The illegal connection to one of the apartments was in place from June 2018 until it was sold and refurbished in the spring of 2021.

It seems it was first in a letter on 25 December 2020 where the Secretary-Administrator mentioned theft of electricity to the property owners, by saying that there are no theft of electricity from neither any neighbours or from the community.

Administrators must know the legislation for communities of property owners. An attendee at the community meeting informed about an article in the legislation that could be used against squatters and criminals within the community. No actions has been taken and it is understood that the Secretary-Administrator, who was chairing the community meeting in an unprofessional way, do not regard as applicable to C.P. Terrazas del Rodeo. This does not correspond with what the association of Administrators of communities of property owners (Colegio de Administradores de Fincas) communicates.

The President of C.P. Terrazas del Rodeo and those who have given her power of attorneys declined video recording of the community meeting. If the meeting would have been recorded, then those who were not present in person could have taken part of it afterwards. Recording of the community meeting would have been useful since the Minutes of the meeting were unlawfully delayed, making it impossible for property owners to legally challenge decisions being made.

The property owners are kept in darkness about the whereabouts of the Governing Board (“Junta Directiva”). There are no Minutes (“Actas”) presented from their meetings and the property owners are not even provided with contact details of its members, who are supposed to represent all property owners. Poor organisation and poor leadership bring poor performance.

It's vital for communities to have a decent management for the community to be taken care of well and for the property owners to get best possible value for the money they pay in community charges. The present management seem to put lots of effort into creating an image that everything is well, but when one is scratching on the surface, then it doesn't look that good. One can discern similarities between how Terrazas del Rodeo is managed and the negative reviews of Jóse Urbano Consultores at Google.

The management of the community decided to close the showers and the toilets by the swimming pools when the pools were allowed to be used again when the COVID-19 restrictions were eased in June. The showers by the pools are to be used for hygienic reasons. The decision of the management stands in stark contrast to the municipality information, where people were advised to use the showers by the beach as a measurement against COVID-19.

There has been lots of trouble with the squatters. The young couple with children that moved in and replaced the previous squatters in the squatter apartment in Bloque 6, were violent. The Police took initiative to a court case of domestic violence (“Violencia de Género”) between the squatters. The property owner next door was asked to a witness in court. The young squatter woman withdrew the case meanwhile the property owner next door was sitting waiting to be called in to the court room.

Thereafter, the squatter woman, filed a police report (“Denuncia”) against the property owner who had come to the court as a witness. The case against the property owner next door follow the same pattern and was withdrawn just when the session was supposed to begin in court.

The young man with a Pitbull, who is associated with “Jefe”, has threatened to kill the same man that “Jefe” earlier has been found guilty of threatening. The Judge at court #4 in Marbella found the young man guilty, but instead of paying the modest fine of 90 EUR, he went to a lawyer and appealed against the sentence. The appeal that the lawyer has given in is full of accusations without any proofs being presented.

The Police knocked the door of an apartment, next to the squatter flat (1-D), in Bloque 6 on 23 June 2019, 7:57 pm. The two policemen wanted to see the mobile phone of the man staying in the flat. They were looking for photos after another property owner, with big debt to the community, had called the Police and reported the man for pedophilia. The policemen looked at the mobile phone and realized it was a false accusation.

The President controls the community by Power of Attorneys. Some of the Power of Attorneys seem to be fake. It's believed that some people who works for the community also are engaged in persuading some property owners to grant the President Power of Attorneys, for the community to make decisions that are in their interest.

The swimming pools were dirty and there was lots of ants already by the end of last summer. One could have expected that these issues should have been dealt with before the start of the summer season. This year when there's an ongoing pandemic, then it's outrageous that the swimming pools have not been cleaned thoroughly.

The tenant knocked on the door of another property owner and delivered threats in person: “You and your wife are going to have problems with me, I'm going to slap you now, I'm going to hit you, I'm going to finish both of you, you're going to the hospital. . .”. His defence in court was based on a false story that his daughter had been hit. Despite the fact that the tenant was found guilty he continued to insult the property owner and he also seems to have continue to distribute his false story among people within the community.

It has come to our knowledge that there's been problem with squatters within the community for quite some time. It seems that the President, Vice-president and Administrator have tried to keep the property owners unaware of this situation as much as possible. Property owners are “shareholders” of the community and it becomes strange when important information isn't distributed to the property owners.

One could believe that an administration would be keen on property owners to pay their community charges, but this does not seem to be the case with the present administration.

It has come to our knowledge that the administration has processed several extra unexpected payments without any notification, which is unacceptable. Property owners that pay their community charges by standing order are therefore advised to check that no extra unexpected charges have been made by the administration.

A property owner has been to the office of the administration, located in “Edificio Berrocal” in Marbella, to hand in a document. The person at the reception desk refused to receive the document. Quite a few of the workers in the office joined the discussion and informed the property owner that an appointment is needed to hand in documents to the administration.

A group of property owners are preparing legal action against the administrator and the president for mismanagement of the community. Besides possible economical mismanagement, many property owners have experienced trouble with the administration for not replying to emails and avoiding dealing with issues.
