Frequently asked questions about condos
What does it mean to own a condo?
Condo ownership has the same benefits of home ownership except that condos come with very minimal maintenance. Condo owners are entitled to the space inside the individual unit as well as access to the common areas of the condominium complex. However, owners must abide by the rules and regulations of the building.
What’s a homeowners’ association (HOA)?
The HOA sets and enforces the rules and regulations of the condominium building. It is also responsible for the maintenance of community amenities. Residents pay a monthly fee to the HOA to the cover the costs of upkeep and repairs.
Are HOA fees expensive?
The cost of the monthly HOA fees depends on the type of condominium. Smaller communities with fewer amenities will have lower monthly HOA dues. A luxury condo, on the other hand, may have higher fees because of the cost of maintaining specialized amenities and high-end features.
Do condos have strict rules?
Rules vary across condominium communities. Some allow pets, others don’t. Regulations may also have policies about children and the extent to which interiors can be altered. It’s a must, therefore, for buyers to obtain the rules and regulations of every condo on their shortlist.
What’s the difference between a condo, an apartment, and a townhome?
A condo is a building or a community of buildings with units owned by an individual homeowner or investor. An apartment, on the other hand, is owned by a corporation or a person who then leases the units to tenants. Townhouses are made up of conjoined units that share one or more walls and typically resemble row houses; like condos; this type of residence is owned by an individual.
