Asked by Laurel, Portland, OR • Tue May 20, 2008
I'm looking for a townhouse. I've found quite a number of units ranging from duplexes to six-10 units. These units range in age from brand new to 20 years old. Quite a few boast no HOA fees. I've asked my realtor and the seller realtor about how such matters as common maintenance are handled and I hear "you just work it out with your neighbor." This makes me really nervous.
Here's my questions:
1. Do the laws governing common interest developments in Oregon not apply to townhouses/row houses/duplexes?
2. Is there some way to find out if there are provisions for common maintenance before making an offer? (Or is this something to build into contingencies on the offer?
