Community charges in Spain

Do Community Charges have to be paid by direct debit under the law?

Lawyer’s answer:

Neither the Shared Property Law (la Ley de Propiedad Horizontal) or the Civil Code impose the need to pay by direct debit. Therefore the Property Administrator cannot demand this. You have every right to pay the charges directly into the Community account as long as it is within the time allowed.
