Section 27: Effect on units of statement that burdens are community burdens
132.This section introduces a conveyancing shortcut. The effect of using the term ‘community burdens’ in a constitutive deed will be to create reciprocal enforceability. That is one of the two criteria for community burdens set out in section 25(1). Notwithstanding the use of the term, however, the burdens will not qualify as community burdens unless the other criterion (common scheme burdens imposed on four or more units) is also met. The term ‘community burden’ will not have to be used in order to create a community burden. It could simply be called a real burden: the criteria in section 25 are the decisive factors in every case.
