Attorney Advice When Purchasing A Condominium
A condominium building is real property that is divided into dwelling units and common elements. Each unit has its own deed and is individually purchased and owned, while the common facilities — such as hallways, basement, elevators, the lobby and exterior areas — are jointly owned by everyone. Each unit owner has a percentage of ownership in the common elements and pays common charges based on his or her percentage of ownership, as well as taxes on the individual units.
