Maine Condominium Law
Residential condominiums and commercial condominiums have become an
important form of real estate ownership and investment. A condominium
is a system of real estate ownership composed of individual units in
multi-unit projects in which portions of the project are used in common
by the unit owners.
The rules for condominium government or management are established in
a document commonly called a Declaration of Condominium. The owners and
occupiers of condominiums are subject to rules established by the Declaration
and include such obligations as the payment of monthly fees for maintaining
the common areas. The Declaration of Condominium is recorded at the Registry
An often used term, condominium documents, includes the Declaration
(a/k/a Master Deed), Bylaws and association formation, plat and floor
plans, and rules and regulations.
