Home Buyers, Beware of the Condo Association! Recently I have had more that a few "run-ins" with condo associations. Mostly with self managed associations, as they have people running the show with not enough knowledge of the complexities that come with the job.Home buyers, please ask all the questions you can and get as much documentation in writing as possible.
