Mexican Law/Condo law in Quintana Roo

Question
We own a condo in a building of 6 units.  There is no HOA/condo by-laws in place and to date everyone pays 1/6th of all the bills that come in.  We have no reserve fund and no formal property manager (we have a volunteer "administrator" who receives the bills and asks for payment each month).  With a lack of a formal condo association with by-laws, are there rules within the state of Quintana Roo that apply to us as unit owners and if so, what are these called and where can we obtain a copy so that we may read and understand (and abide by) them?  If there are no rules in place what is our position without a condo association?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Answer
Dear Sarah,

There is a "Ley de Condominio" in the state of Quintana Roo.

The law covers the most important points that would be included in formal by-laws.

Hope this helps,
