Condo Units

Florida Condo Condo Units

Florida Statutes 718.103(28) “Unit” means a part of the condominium property which is subject to exclusive ownership. A unit may be in improvements, land, or land and improvements together, as specified in the declaration.

718.103(29) shows that “Unit owner” or “owner of a unit” means a record owner of legal title to a condominium parcel.

One simplistic way to describe a condominium is as a property of two parts:

  1. Condo units, exclusively owned by the buyers of each unit, and
  2. Common elements, which are any areas not included within the unit boundaries. Unit owners also own an undivided share in the common elements.

Unit owners, generally, become members of the condo association.

Prospective Florida condo buyers should, if they don't understand how condo units and condo associations operate, engage licensed and reputable attorneys and advisors to guide their buying decision.
