This Intellectual Output responds to the increasing demand for specific training on condominiums and other multi-unit building types of organizations within the EU and is mostly, but not only, addressed for real estate professionals. In recent years, the International Union of Property Owners (UIPI) has identified a need for better training, comparative data and exchange of knowledge on multi-units building legal structure, decision-making process as well as the societal, financial, and management challenges linked to multi-ownership structure (including EU energy efficiency and universal accessibility goals). Indeed, no such data is easily accessible and when they are, none of them provide a full and comprehensive picture of the main aspects of the condominium. UIPI member associations have a long experience in providing legal and fiscal advice to individual homeowners and landlords. Some have even a strong focus on condominium management and legal support. Therefore, training on these aspects is needed among UIPI members.
This Intellectual Output will address the training gaps of the Housing+ 3 target groups to differentiate and recognize the different types of multi-unit buildings (condominiums, leaseholds and cooperatives) that currently coexist in EU.
Real estate professionals; Multi-level policymakers and civil servants that work in the housing sector; and Academic community in housing.
