Modernisation (WEG) of a property

Modernisation (WEG) – Modernisation includes all structural measures taken by the owner with the aim of sustainably increasing the utility value of the property and permanently improving the living conditions. In the case of individual property, the condominium owner can carry out any type of modernization, but in the case of common property, the owner is dependent on the resolution of the condominium owners. Modernisations of the common property can only be decided by three quarters of all condominium owners entitled to vote. The exception is when the owner demands barrier-free access.
