3.0 out of 5 stars Good information, if not a bit obvious, March 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Finding the key to your castle: A guide to cooperative living in your condominium, townhouse or planned development home (Paperback)
This book is intended for people who are interested in a Common Interest Development, sometimes referred to as condos. I'm pretty sure one of the reviewers falls under the "my castle, my rules. it's a free country!" category, and therefore is not a good audience for this book...

There is quite a bit of useful information in this book, but nothing I didn't already know and/or think of on my own. I'm in the process of purchasing a condo and have done a lot of research thus far. Let me sum up this book:

Step 1: Read the CC&R's, the rule book and any/all of the documents you signed
Step 2: Buy insurance
Step 3: Resolve matters as peacefully as possible. Litigation is a last resort and everyone suffers
Step 4: If you have trouble cooperating with others, have an inherent need to paint you house black and love to break rules THAT YOU AGREED TO AND SIGNED, a condo isn't for you.

The end.
