This note will first examine some of the operative provisions of the condominium statutes. Particular emphasis will be placed upon those provisions which are basic to the creation, existence, and dissolution of this unique form of property ownership. The FHA Model Statute For Creation of Apartment Ownership will be the principal vehicle of analysis, for it is the basis of many of the state condominium statutes. State provisions which differ from the Model Act will then be examined to discover the best statutory answer to the needs of condominium housing. Finally, attention will be focused on the tax implications of the condominium, principally from the developer's viewpoint. This will, of course, necessitate an examination of the functional problems that arise in tax planning.
