    A Welcome Home reader emailed to ask about the differences between a condominium and a co-op. Coldwell Banker Realtor Jacqueline Hoyt explains the distinctions:

    “The Connecticut Real Estate Practice and Law Handbook, by Katherine A. Pancak, distinguishes condos from co-ops. A condo, she writes, is a community where units are sold separately and common areas are owned by all of the unit owners together. In the case of a co-op, the property (including the units themselves) are owned by an association. ‘The unit owners are members of the association and have the right to exclusive possession of a particular unit.’ If you’re considering a co-op or condo, consult with your Realtor about community roles and responsibilities.”
