    Like Your Apartment
Enough To Buy It?
How much do you like your
a8*rtment? Enough to buy it?
You might be faced witli
having to decide some day,
says the Better Business
Bureau. All over the country
many apartment houses are
being converted to con
dominiums.
Generally speaking, the
term condominium refers to
individual ownership of units
in a multi-unit project, with
land and all other parts of the
project owned in common.
Upkeep of jointly-owned
property is covered by
monthly maintenance fees.
If an apartment building in
converted to a condominium
development, it can be a good
idea to buy an apartment —
either the one you’re living in
or another in the building.
Instead of throwing away
thousands of dollars in rent
money, you’d be making an
investment, with a gain from
any increased value of your
unit. As a condominium
owner, you could realize a
substantial tax advantage
over renting an apartment.
A FEW DRAWBACKS
But there can be some
drawbacks too. Your first
problem could be coming up
with several thousand dollars
for a down payment. And
remember that you would
become part owner of the
plumbing, wiring and other
common structural elements
of the building. If these things
haven’t been well maintained
or are outdated, you and the
new owners would have to
bear the substantial cost of
restoration. Sometimes
apartment dwellers are
victimized in a conversion by
speculative operators who
take advantage of the current
condominium boom to dump
aging or undesirable
buildings.
Before you commit yourself
to anything, find out if an
engineering survey was made
«f the property and if resultant
work has been completed. Are
there any housing violations
outstanding?
? Have there been any im
provements to enhance the
livability of the project, such
ps the addition of a swimming
£ool or other community
facility? Have kitchens or
bathrooms been remodelled?
ROLE OF DEVELOPER
There are some other
questions you should answer
before you decide to buy:
— Is the developer retaining
control over certain elements
of the project, such as
recreation facilities or
parking spaces? This can
become a real problem
because the developer could
charge exorbitant fees for you
to use the facilities.
Another related problem is
that if a developer buys a
single condominium unit for
his own use, as an owner he
could prevent any change in
the declaration (by-laws of the
project) not to his liking.
(Usually 100 percent of the
owners must agree to
amendments of the
declaration.)
— Find out also if the
developer has reserved the
right to control the con
dominium management or to

add new facilities.
— Consider also whether
you want a group, the con
dominium association,
determining your future costs
and expenses (in the way of
monthly maintenance fees).
If you are a tenant in a
building that’s being con
verted and you don’t want to
buy, there’s probably nothing
you can do except move, the
BBB advises. Some states
have laws giving you as much
as four months to move out. If
you have a long-term lease,
you can’t be evicted until it
expires, provided, of course,
that you comply with the
terms of the lease.
