Important terms to know that deal with the parts of the condominium complex that are outside your unit are "common elements" or "limited common elements". "Limited common elements" are things like balconies and patios, that are used only by the owners and tenants of a single unit. "Common elements" are used by all, such as the parking lots, playground, and pool.
Balconies and patios are “limited common elements”. “Limited common elements” are structurally part of the common building, but are used by only an individual unit owner. It is your responsibility to maintain them in a neat and clean condition. You may not store indoor furniture, bicycles, or other inappropriate items on balconies. Outdoor furnishings such as patio tables and chairs are permitted.
Landlords must register their tenants with the Association. Tenant registration forms are available from the Association office. The Association must be provided with the names and contact information for all people living in the unit.
Just think: If there were a fire, we would need to make sure that everyone got out.
