Abstract

After the changes in Romania in 1989 most flats in existing, state owned, buildings were sold to the occupants. This was a sort of "getting back" for those people who lost their private property, but another reason for this decision was the lacking of centralized management capacity of the state administration. Looking back and analyzing how the private property was defined at that time, we can say with no doubts: it was made in a wrong way, and as time passed this became a disaster. Tremendous progress was made in the last twenty years in every area of life, but the existing stock of flat buildings still regresses from all points of view. On one hand the reason can be found in the way private property division was done, defining individual property at the level of each apartment in a building unit. On the other hand the so called "owner administration" model cannot work efficiently due to the lack of knowledge, division, overemphasizing individual interest etc. This paper makes an up-to-date analysis of present Romanian situation and proposes business models for existing and new flat building administration in order to improve the comfort and life quality of the owners.
