Common property is the part of a condominium complex that is owned in common by all unit owners. The bylaws define the common property in a particular complex and will include everything outside the boundaries of an owner’s unit. Items such as hallways, lobbies, recreational facilities, landscaping, exterior finishes, structural components, pipes, electrical wiring are common property. Each unit is assigned a proportional share in the common property. All owners can use, and are responsible for, the common property. Monthly contributions are assessed to pay expenses related to owning and operating the common property.
