It all depends on the community. SInce in both cases, townhouse or condo, you are the owner that makes you responsible for inside problems. Association will cover for roof, exterior of building, common areas. on some occasions they also cover basic cable, pest control, trash, and lawn service. Is there a specific community you are thinking off?
Most townhomes include maintenance fees which cover the cost of exterior maintenance. The newer the townhome community the more likely the association is responsible for the exterior. The older ones didn't have it this way and they are suffering for it. SO its more like a condo. Infact many communities that call themselves townhomes ar actually quite identical to condo.
