The Condominium Conversion Process 

Converting a property into condominiums involves several key steps, including preparing and recording essential legal documents at the Registry of Deeds. Our team will work closely with you to coordinate the preparation of the Master Deed, Declaration of Trust, and Floor Plans. 

Master Deed 

The Master Deed is a crucial document that defines the condominium and its components, including individual units and common areas. Our attorneys will assist you in drafting a comprehensive Master Deed, outlining the property description, unit divisions, allocation of common areas, and percentage interests in those areas. We will also facilitate the process of recording the Master Deed with the appropriate registry of deeds.

Declaration of Trust 

The Declaration of Trust establishes the Condominium Association responsible for managing the property. Our law firm will help you create a Declaration of Trust that outlines the structure of the Association, the roles and responsibilities of trustees, and the rights and obligations of unit owners. We will also ensure that the condominium’s bylaws, rules, and regulations are in compliance with state and local requirements.
