Condo Conversions

Condominium conversion, which changes the legal status of a property, has been very popular in Massachusetts for decades. For a seller, the condominium conversion process represents a way to legally separate and sell apartments one or more at a time.

When contacted to separate your property in condominiums, our first task will be to verify that the condo conversion does not violate local zoning or require a special permit. In a condo conversion, an experienced lawyer not only drafts the condominium documents, but also coordinates and guides the entire conversion project. For example, the lawyer can contact a qualified registered surveyor who will be required to prepare a site plan of the property. In addition, an architect or certified professional surveyor must generate floor plans for each unit called “unit plans.” In many cases, the lawyer can oversee the preparation of the plans while incorporating certain key information into the condominium documents.
