NEW ORLEANS — You’re not alone in wondering if your condo condominium is the right place to live.
But the question is, is there a condo condo law that should apply to you?
In Florida, there is.
The law says if you want to buy or rent an apartment or condominium, you have to get approval from the condo association and sign a contract.
“If you have the wrong type of agreement in place, the condo corporation has the authority to sell or lease your property,” said John Bailor, an attorney with the Florida State Bar Association.
If you’re buying or renting a condominium in a condo association, it has to be in good standing.
And if you’re renting an apartment, you should get approval by the condo board of directors and get your condo registered.
You may have to go to court to fight that.
But you’ll probably win.
The condo board can sell your property for $150,000 if you owe it.
The condo association can sell the unit for $250,000.
It can also lease the unit.
But if you live in a condo, the board has to give you a formal offer, which you have 30 days to accept or reject.
It’s a tricky process because the condo owners and the board don’t all live in the same condo, said David Storch, an associate attorney with Palm Beach County’s law firm, Storchuk.
They may have different condo types.
Some owners can buy the condo in different neighborhoods and have different units.
But there are usually more condo units than owners, Stochan said.
The condo association has the right to reject the sale and the condominium board has the power to accept the sale.
A condo association is the entity that sells the condo to the owners, and the association is responsible for paying for maintenance, utilities, and other things.
The association has to approve the sale, too, so if you have a problem with your condo, the association has your back, Stosch said.
A condo sale in a neighborhood that’s not a part of your condo association could end up being considered illegal if you move out.
It could be your property goes on the market, the condo association sells your unit, and you don’t want it to.
If you buy or sell your condo in a private home, you are subject to the condo law.
You can’t use it as a vehicle for a real estate deal, and it has no say in what happens to your home, Stotch said, but it is subject to condo regulations.
When a conde-coop buys or rents a unit, the person who buys or sells has to agree to abide by condo regulations and make sure the condo is up to code, Stolch said
