September Meeting – MUD Act Presentation

Hello all,

At our recent September meeting the focus was on the MUD Act 2011, and the legal issues as well as obligations for Owners’ Management Companies under the MUD Act.

We are very grateful to Suzanne Bainton, Liston & Company Solicitors, for taking the time out of her busy schedule to attend and present to our AON meeting last week.

The meeting was well attended, and broad range of MUD Act related issues were raised and discussed during the Q&A which followed Suzannes presentation. We hope everyone found the presentation along with the Q&A session afterwards, to be both useful and informative.

The slides from Suzannes presentation on the night are now available at the link below in Powerpoint and PDF formats.

  1. S7 MUD Act .. The transfer of an interest (common ares) does not relieve the person otherwise responsible form completing the development an complying with the condition of the pp and building regulations, So the responsibility is not just on developer.. it on the person otherwise responsible but it arises on the coming into being of ‘transfer of an interest .. common areas. In other words the completion notice must have been served or an omc /member of an omc is applying to the court for an order declaring the the development is a completed one under S5 of the act.


  2. Has any member of omc apt owner in beacon south quarter considered using MUD Act to have defect remedied by the owise responsible to comply with S7 and building regs.

    Means apply to c court for an order declaring the development to be a s 5 development (where 80 per cent of unt for which pp granted sold ) and obliges not only owner shovlin and ors but any person otherwise responsible under S7 (Nama and CO CO to comply withe building regulation AND remedy defects. S7 only come into being when interest being transferred to omc and member of man co can apply to the court as it seem the omc certainly not on for it,


  3. The presentation does not set out that a person shall not transfer his interest in the unit until inter alia ownership of the relevant parts of common areas and reversion in the unit has been transferred to the OMC.

    Nor does it deal with pre April 11estates where developer are bust or bankrupt and can’t transfer as much as a sod to a management Co or Co Co without consent of bank who have sold loan on to Nama or vulture funds but still on title.
