Each co-owner automatically becomes a member of the Condominium Association when purchasing a unit. When becoming a member, the co-owner legally agrees to accept and abide by all the provisions of the condominium documents. These documents include the Master Deed and Bylaws of the Condominium which comprises the rights and obligations of the owners and the Association. The Association By-laws are the corporate bylaws which outline how the Association will be operated, and the Articles of Incorporation creates the Association as a Michigan corporation. Condominium documents should be passed with title to the unit from a seller to the new owner. Copies of the documents can be found in another section of the website.
