Some states have quite different Rules and Regulations depending on the structure.

Condo Associations general mean multi story buildings and they share common property/items like halls, elevators, lobbies, front doors, laundry facility, parking lots, etc.

Home Owner Associations generally are standalone homes on a deeded piece of property with shared amenities such as pools, tennis courts, clubhouse, etc. Side by side townhomes are also generally included in Home Owner Associations in states that make a difference.

Hope this helps.

To the OP. Some old associations have what is called Right of First Refusal which says the association has the right to buy the unit, instead of you, at the agreed sale price from the seller. This was originally done so the "wrong" people could not get in the area.

This might be the dregs of that but no one can enforce such anymore. I expect that paying any transfer fee ends the situation......LOL
