Does any law require that the apartment association must inform the residents of its activities? And how to get the chairman of the apartment association to hold a meeting?
The general meeting must be held at least once a year because the annual report has to be approved by the general meeting (Non-profit Associations Act §36 (3)). During the general meeting the financial plan is approved (Apartment Ownership and Apartment Associations Act §41) but it can also be approved together with the annual report. The statute can also require the general meetings to be held more often. These two documents (annual report and management plan) must provide enough information about how the apartment association has spent and how it is planning to spend their resources.
If the chairman of the apartment association does not hold a general meeting or ignores the requirement to provide information to apartment association members, you can take the following action.
Read the statutes from the registry.
Request information from the Tartu County Court if you want to go through the annual reports.
Require in writing that the board members must hold a general meeting (Non-profit Associations Act §20 (3)). The request has to be signed by at least 1/10 of the apartment association members. NB! Follow the statute of the apartment association.
If the board members do not hold a general meeting you can require the meeting to be held together with others who have signed the request (Non-profit Associations Act §20 (4)).
Election of new board members might also be one solution to the problems.
