Dear Mister Condo,
I own 1 out of 5 apartments in a condominium. Would the larger apartments have greater voting rights or is it 1 vote per apartment? I recently did a real estate course (Massachusetts) which stated this. Thank you for any advice you can give.
Mister Condo replies:
P.D., unless the condo declaration or by-laws detail otherwise, one vote per unit owner should be the law of the land. In Massachusetts, your best resource for getting a definitive answer is as close as your browser. Head over to the New England Chapter of the Community Associations Institute’s website at http://www.caine.org/ where you’ll find a wealth of information related to condominiums in your state and be sure to check out their legal directory if you need a more thorough answer or an attorney to review your condo docs to confirm your voting power. All the best.
