How calculate lot size for condominium?

Asked by Mike Zubinatosi, Redwood City, CA Tue Jan 26, 2010

When calculating the lot size of a condominium do we include the common areas or easements?

Help the community by answering this question:


I have seen condo's listed with 27 acres, 40 acres, or more. It is misleading at best.

Since I will not own that land all by myself it is not really owned by the condo. It may have rights to use that land, but that is different from owning that land.

A condo by definition does not have a lot. Are you talking about a townhouse with a small yard? or possible an SFR that's attached? If so, title will reflect the lot size. If you are measuring it, measure from the end of the common wall to the end of the yard (where the fence is) or garage. Whatever divides the property from the next property or common area. Basically length x width.
