you may have to get permission from the Board or Building managent.
And of course, many require that you use Licensed contractors , and submit plans to be
You own the space, so you are allowed to do what you want as long as you obey the rules of the association. Be sure to also hire licensed contractors to do the work. ALWAYS request the condo docs and bylaws BEFORE you buy the unit, so you know what you can and can't do.
You should review the Condo Association Rules and incorporate any restrictions into your design. The walls you intend to remove should be "non-load bearing". Most condo's share the plumbing stacks for waste. If your design includes moving a toilet to an entirely new location that is not a "shared" location with the other units, you may have an issue. I am not sure what sort of revisions you want to make to the heating and cooling system, but if it involves work on the roof or on an exterior wall, you may have an issue. As an Architect, I can help you try to coordinate your wants and needs into a plan that works within the rules of the Association. Feel free to contact me. Good Luck!

Yes, you can renovate condos. Most buildings require work to be done by insured and bonded contractors. As well as plans may have to be approved by the board if removing walls.
