Landlords looking to maximize the value of existing multi-unit properties may consider converting to a condominium arrangement. Likewise, developers may find it more beneficial to construct a new property as a condominium complex rather than offering apartments for rent. At the Law Office of Vesper Gibbs Barnes & Associates, our real estate attorneys represent owners seeking to establish condominiums in the Boston area. Drawing on more than 40 years of combined legal experience, we provide the guidance and the specific documentation you need to ensure compliance with Massachusetts law.
A condominium arrangement is a unique form of property ownership where a resident owns a unit and shares ownership of common areas, such as hallways, stairwells, walkways, driveways, yards and curtilage. Owners of individual condo units have the right to sell their property at any time.
Condominium arrangements can be made for a large variety of residential structures:
Merchants can also enter condominium arrangements for commercial properties.
In Boston, condominiums are governed by Massachusetts General Law Chapter 183A, which requires that various documents be filed, including a master deed for the entire property and unit deeds for each individual unit.
Our firm helps landowners and developers ensure compliance with Massachusetts law by providing counsel on all applicable statutes, rules and regulations and by drafting the necessary documents to establish a condominium arrangement. As we do with homeowners associations, we act as general legal and corporate counsel, providing accurate and reliable transactional and contract services. Because we are deeply committed to our clients’ success, we work closely with you, providing individualized attention and remaining easily accessible to address your concerns throughout the process.
