In the Republic of Ireland during 2006 consumer associations and apartment owners’ resident groups increasingly highlighted that significant difficulties were being encountered in the management and regulation of multi-unit developments.

It was considered that these difficulties largely arose from a combination of two factors: poor governance arrangements, in which some developers retained inappropriate control over multi-unit developments, and an understanding deficit among apartment purchasers, who seemed to be unaware of the consequences of buying an apartment in a development by contrast with buying a detached dwelling.

The Irish Home Builders Association published a Code of Practice for Multi-Unit Developments. This sets out key responsibilities for developers in the early stages of a development. In connection with the legal structure for managing multi-unit developments, the Code requires the establishment of an owners’ management company, that service charges and building investment funds (sinking funds) must be provided for; and that the developer must not retain a controlling shareholding in the owners’ management company after its transfer to unit owners.
