Expense distribution of trees of exclusive property
Different is the case of trees of exclusive property. These can be placed:
- on common parts of the condominium: Article 1102 of the Civil Code allows all condominiums to use the common parts according to their own interests as long as they do not alter the distinction and do not prevent other condominiums from doing the same. Therefore, it is certainly permissible to plant flowers or trees in the common garden
- on parts of private property: in this case, the tree is planted in the exclusive property garden.
If in the first case the expenses for ordinary or extraordinary maintenance of the plants are borne only by the owner, since he cannot ask the other condominiums to participate in the costs for pruning, for uprooting or planting (it is he who in fact made the choice to acquire the plants), in the second case instead ( trees on private property) a distinction must be made. In particular:
- if the trees were planted by the original builder with the aim of providing an ornamental value to the entire building, any expenditure - ordinary or extraordinary - will be divided among all condominiums in proportion to thousandths, unless otherwise agreed in the regulation
- if, on the other hand, the trees have been planted on the initiative of the condominium owner of the garden, they will have to face all expenses.
