Buying a Condominium? Here’s what you need to know.

If you are considering purchasing a condominium, whether it’s a new one or a resale, you need to carefully review these important documents before making your decision: Buying a Condo When buying a condo, there are additional condo docs you need to review and take into consideration above what is generally looked at when purchasing a single family home for sale. Shared Ownership Condominiums, by design, have some level of shared ownership.  In most condos, the condo association will be responsible for maintenance and upkeep of those shared areas.  The shared parts of a condo can include: The parking lot The actual buildings – from the sheetrock out. Swimming Pool Gym Other Common Areas In addition, the condo association is responsible for the insurance on the shared areas.  Since the association will take in money from all condo owners, they decide where and how that money gets spent on behalf of all of the owners. This makes reviewing the condo docs extremely important – to insure the money is being spent appropriately. The Condominium Instruments. The Instruments include the Declaration, the Bylaws, the Plats and Plans, as well as the Rules and Regulations and, if your Condominium Association is incorporated, you’ll also need to obtain their Articles of Incorporation. This set of documents should clearly state the operating procedures by which the Condominium functions. The most important of these aspects deals with “use restrictions.” As an example, the use restrictions will spell out whether you can you rent or sublet your unit, and if you can for how long? Can you have pets? Are the amenities of the condominium, such as a tennis court or a shared pool, included in your condominium fee, or will they cost extra? The Bylaws will also tell you if there are architectural control requirements which have to be met, as an example, if you want to make external changes to your unit. Many community associations have architectural controls that will be outlined in the Association documents. These controls must be followed by all unit owners. Condo Buying 101 A statement of the monthly condominium fee allocated to your unit. At the end of the Condominium Declaration, there should be an Exhibit listing the percentage interest for every unit in the building. The simplest way to determine your monthly fee is to multiply your percentage interest times the total budget that should be your annual fee. Now divide that number by 12 and you’ll have your monthly payment. As an example, if the annual budget is $100,000, and you have 5% interest in your Association, your annual fee will be $5,000, and your monthly fee $416.66. You also need to know if the utility charges are included in your monthly fee. Often, buyers are caught off guard thinking that their monthly condo fee also includes heat, electricity and gas, and then feel taken advantage of when they find out otherwise. If you are purchasing from a seller, you’ll want to know if they are current
