How to Rent Out a Condo: Watch Out! It's Not the Same as a Home
How to rent out a condo: This may seem like a simple question, but if you own a condominium, you probably know it's actually rather complicated.
For those who are foggy on what a condo is, let's start with the definition: It's a home, typically part of a larger building, that comes with shared common areas such as yards and garages that are maintained by hired help, rather than by individual owners. This makes condo ownership a breeze, by comparison with the labor involved in maintaining your own house, and you pay for that convenience in condo fees.
This more communal living arrangement, however, also means that you can't just rent out your place whenever the whim strikes. In the past, condominiums were pretty flexible about allowing unit owners to rent out their homes.
