Explain in English the French real estate term ‘règlement de co-propriété’

In France, the ‘Règlement de co- propriété’ is the strata or condominium agreement that splits a development horizontally and vertically into apartments.

The specific division of each apartment is done via a document called ‘état descriptif de division’. This document makes individual titles (titres in French) for each apartment so they can be sold as free hold.

The document also describes the common areas shared by the owners, the items included in private ownership, the mutual agreements between the owners like what is permitted in terms of alterations, external appearance of the apartment etc.

All the details detailed in the document create a structure that needs to be followed by the Syndic  for the co-property.
