Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
There are two different deeds, one for the unit itself within the condo, then there is a deed that covers the common areas of the building that all members hold a small percentage of ownership in. So when you buy into a condo, you actually buy not just the unit but a share in the ownership of the common areas in the building. All of the condo unit owners own a percentage of the common areas as well through the master deed.
