You will want to ask for a copy of the "Declaration of Condominium" or Declaration of Restrictive Covenants" which are recorded at the County Register of Deeds Office. The declaration describes the nature of the project and establishes rules to govern the use of units and common areas. Items that might be important to you are pet restrictions, installation of a satellite dish, parking and rental restrictions. If something is important to you, make sure you can do it. The common expenses of your condo development may but not limited to include grounds upkeep, building maintenance, hazard insurance premiums, and management fees. Check to see if utilities such as water, garbage and sewer are included in the monthly fee. When these expenses go up, the cost is usually passed on to the property owners in the form of increased dues and assessments.
Items to see before an actual purchase should include meeting minutes, if there are any major upcoming repairs, what is the current year's budget and how much is in the reserve fund, what is the past five year's history for special assessments and association fee increases, and how may units are investor owned. Complexes with a higher rate of owner occupancy tend to be more marketable and mortgage friendly for buyers purchasing.

The success of the condominium association is directly related to the caliber of the association. A homeowners' association, through its executive board, will often employ a management company to take care of maintenance, collect dues and assessments, and carry out other day-to-day responsibilities of the association. If the association board of directors is functioning properly and has good legal counsel, then the entire community will be an exciting, desirable place to call home.

The owner of a condominium has individual title to the "inside space" of the condo unit and an undivided interest in the physical components of the building(s) and land. This includes outside hallways, roofs, driveways, elevators, recreation and landscape areas. Be sure there is a clear understanding of your unit ownership.
