The Condominium Plan is filed by the “Declarant” (typically the CID’s developer) prior to the construction of a condominium project. The Condominium Plan shows the engineering specifications of the CID and contains descriptions and diagrams identifying the boundaries of the separate interests (the condominium “units”), the common areas, and exclusive use common areas (i.e., parking spaces and balconies). (Civ. Code § 4120, Civ. Code § 4285.) By contrast, Planned Unit Developments (“PUDs”) use a “Tract Map” to illustrate the boundaries of the various lots and common areas.
Addressing Maintenance Questions
The boundaries illustrated in the Condominium Plan may help clarify the members’ respective maintenance responsibilities versus those of the association where the maintenance responsibilities under the CC&Rs may be ambiguous.
