No, A Realtor or Agent can be all that you need when purchasing a Condo, however if you need additional legal guidance you are certainly welcome to hire one. Overall, it isn't necessary. I strongly recommend reading through the Condo Association Disclosures so that you fully understand what is expected from the Association and you, the Buyer. When purchasing a Condo through a Resale Agent or from a Builder in New Construction, you are given 10-days recission to review the Condo Documents or to Cancel your Contract. Condominiums can serve as an Ideal Home for a Buyer if the provisions and arrangements are a good fit for their Lifestyle.
