The condominium is one of the fastest growing forms of housing in the United States. As a legal concept, the condominium involves "separate ownership of individual units in a multi-unit project," along with an undivided interest in common areas owned by members of the project. Unit owners, while owning their units separately, are responsible for expenses relative to the management and maintenance of the project.
