The total group of condo owners can only own the real condo and they share with partial titles and common areas such as roofs, hallways and swimming pools.
Moreover, condominiums are being managed by the owner’s association which provides rules and regulations among owners. This association ruled many things like the association oblige the owners to pay the maintenance fee for maintaining the common areas. Another thing that the association do’s and don’ts is the owner can paint whatever theme he or she likes inside the unit but he/she forbids doing it outside.
