Buying a condo isn’t exactly the same as buying a home. With a condo, you have to consider both the unit you are buying as well as the condo project as a whole. So, before you buy a condo, make sure you know the answers to some important questions.
- Ask about the condo association rules and regulations, and be sure to request a copy for your review.

- Find out what the monthly condo fees are and more importantly, ask exactly what the fees cover and whether any owners are delinquent in their payments.
- You should also ask about the financial condition of the condo association. How much money is in the association reserve fund, and whether any special assessments are anticipated.
- Ask if there are any pending lawsuits against the association. What the association’s master insurance policy covers, and whether any of the units are currently in foreclosure.
- Lastly, talk to some of the current owners of other units and ask them what they like best and least about their unit and overall complex.
