The two laws stipulate that developers, management companies, associations and owners’ unions are to align their situations with the provisions of the laws within six months from the dates of their issuance, with the possibility for the relevant authority’s director to extend the deadline for the same period when required.

The provisions of the two laws do not affect contracts between developers and owners signed before their enforcement, as well as fundamental association systems approved and deposited by a relevant authority, except for the formation of owners’ associations.
