Come Learn Everything there is to Know about Condos

A condo can be a single family home, a flat or a side by side duplex.  You can’t always tell by looking at the structure what it is and how it is defined. Do you own the air space around the building or only the interior  space between the walls?      What is a limited common area and who maintains it? Who pays for water and sewer and what if a water pipe breaks in the building?  Is it your responsibility or the homeowner’s association? What is the responsibility of the HOA management company? Does your board of directors have insurance?  How to find out about upcoming special assessments before you buy a condo?

Find out answer the answers to these questions and more by  attending this Dwell Realty sponsored class “A Condo Is a Condo or Is It?  It’s open to the public  and if you’re a licensee will provide you with three hours of elective continuing education. I’ll be there along with Natalie Travers-Smyre who has over ten years of home owner’s association management experience and Jim McCollum, attorney at law.
