    I live in a condominium in a building with 48 units. I bought the unit and am under HOA rules.

    What is the technical term for a condominium owner if not tenant?

    Talking to a neighbor today and I called us tenants, but it seems like the wrong term.

    owners;

    The people renting from the condo owners are renters, or tenants.

    Resident Owner and non-resident owners are the property owners in a condo project.

    So a good technical term would be residents when referring to the body of individuals living in the condominium project.

    All tenants are residents, all residents are not tenants.

    We're all tenants. If you don't think so, quit paying your property tax. My house will be paid off in six years, but taxes are forever, and they aren't cheap.

    We are called co-owners. Check your by laws, the term will be in there.

    I hate Condos and am currently trying to sell mine. I can't wait for a buyer's inspection that points out something our idiot board has to fix. Should be fun.

    Owned by the condo corporation, if you do not believe me try NOT paying the condo maintenance fee.

    I don't like the word owner. It makes the renter seem more sub-human don't you think?



    :rolleyes:


    :p

    Yeah. Owner reminds me of slavery.
    We probably ought to ban that word and make up something softer and more meaningless.
