2. What is a Condominium?

Answer: Condominium means real property, portions of which are designated for separate ownership and the remainder of which is designated for common ownership solely by the owners of those portions. Real property is not a condominium unless the undivided interests in the common elements are vested in the unit owners, and unless a Declaration and a Survey Map and Plans have been recorded pursuant to the WCA.

Thus, this type of ownership of common elements is what distinguishes a condominium from a planned unit development or a co-op.
