"ASSOCIATIONS DE FAIT"
You regularly gather with friends collectors of stamps and made a small exhibition of collections your time to time.
You are of this fact! An association of ... .. did, an "association de fait" !!!
An unincorporated association "association de fait" is thus nothing but a group of people who decided to follow a common purpose through a common activity and awareness.
The "association de fait" may be the phase that precedes your decision to create your ASBL stamp collectors, but do not delay !!
Indeed, the "association de fait" has not only advantages and is not recommended !!
Either the steps to create your "association de fait" are limited ... since there is none !! But the responsibilities they, are not at all !! Indeed, if during your exhibition stamps, a billboard fell on the foot of one of your guests !! One of your collector friends who asked this panel may be held personally liable for damages !!
The association de fait has no legal personality, has neither rights or obligations. Its operation and its establishment is not subject to a statute. It therefore can not make commitments on behalf of, or own property.
Members are personally liable for the debts and commitments of the association. So they pledge their personal assets. And the members act in their own behalf and not on behalf of the association.
IS WARNED IS FOREARMED, BUT REMEMBER WE DO THE RIGHT PARTNER IS ONE OF THE BASES OF OUR DEMOCRACY
