Planned Unit Developments
Each purchaser has exclusive ownership to a lot or unit, including the property that lot/unit sits on and the residential dwelling itself. Membership to the association is mandatory.
Condominium Communities
Condo owners typically only own the air space, but not the physical boundaries of the unit or the land beneath the unit. The owner holds a shared interest in the common area.
High-rise Buildings
Similar to condominium communities, high-rise owners typically only own their unit and have a shared interest in the common area. High-rise communities have very specific needs & unique challenges.
Homeowners Associations
HOA’s own the common areas that homeowners have very specific rights and obligations to. These common areas may include the grounds, recreational areas, and sometimes roads.
