The owners of the residential premises in an apartment house have the right to choose how to manage the house. It can be:
- manage directly by the owners;

- management of the HOA or housing co-operative;

- management of the management company.
The choice of control method is determined by the General meeting of owners of residential premises, after which a report is prepared. In favor of a particular method must be filed not less than 50% of the vote.
If the management method selected by a majority of votes, the management company, then it is a contract for a period of not more than 3 years. The management company may be chosen in an open competition announced by the city administration.
At the end of each year, as well as at the end of the contract, the General meeting of owners may initiate a refusal of service unilaterally. This decision will also need more than 50% of the vote.
In addition, homeowners have the right to terminate the previously concluded contract and before the end of the year. You must adopt a majority of votes such decision at the General meeting and to submit a collective application to the court for termination of the agreement, in connection with non-compliance from the management company of its terms. According to recent legislation, the documents proving the execution of the contract, must now submit to the court the tenants and the management company.
