Rest assured it is not as complicated as it sounds. I would welcome the opportunity to help you find and purchase your condo and help you navigate the details! I may be reached at 609-947-2451
Condo ownership in a duplex building is quite simple. There is a master deed referred to as "condo docs" that clearly states the responsibilities of the owners and shared areas are defined. Essentially, all repairs, maintenance, etc pertaining the building itself are shared equally while inside your 4 walls are your responsibility. There are no condo fees. There are 3 insurance coverages: one for the building and grounds which is the condo insurance, one for the studs inward which is the individual owners insurance, and lastly is the flood insurance.
If you would like, please contact me and I will be glad to send you a sample Master deed. My cell phone is 6y09-665-2031 and my email is email@example.com
Congratulations on your decision to buy a Ocean City home.
That question is right down my alley as I have owned several duplex/condos in Ocean City.All maintenance and repairs on the outside of the building are shared by the first and 2nd floor owners. Most of the time they are shared equally unless the 2nd floor has more square footage and in that case it could be a 60% for the 2nd and 40% for 1st floor. In most cases it is a 50/50 split.If the roof leaks or needs replacing, it is both floors who have to pay. Anything on the outside of the building like lawn, shrubs and any painting is shared. Anything you do inside is on you. The insurance is also split in the same way. Flood, Hazard and Liability insurance are split between the 2 floors. You will be responsible for your own contents insurance from the walls in of your unit. That will cover you from the drywall in ,your kitchen cabinets and furniture in case of a fire. If you buy an older duplex/condo that has only one water meter, that also is shared equally between the 2 floors. The newer duplex/condos have seperate water meters.
