Building or Office Condominium?
An office condominium is similar to a residential condominium. A condominium association is formed and the association owns the land and buildings. The condominium unit owner is conveyed title in the interior space of his unit as well as an undivided interest in the common areas (building and land) of the association. The percentage of ownership is derived by the percentage of each owner’s square footage as a percentage of the total square footage of the condominium project. Maintenance, repairs, and other fees and allocated based on this percentage of ownership.
Office buildings, while typically more expensive than office condominiums, offer the opportunity to add tenants and a potentially growing income stream over the period of ownership.
