No More Unit Plans on Condo Deeds

by @ 12:28 pm. Filed under Indexing

On January 25, 2008, Governor Patrick signed legislation eliminating the final paragraph of G.L. c. 183A, s. 9 which required that the first deed out for any condominium unit have attached to it a copy of the floor plan of that unit and the adjacent units. The floor plan attachment is no longer required, although this statutory amendment does not take effect until April 24, 2008. As a practical matter, this should not have a major impact at the registry of deeds. Although we have been aware of the former requirement, we chose not to research every condo deed being recorded in an attempt to determine whether it was the “first one out.” Nevertheless, the absence of such a unit plan would raise questions about the validity of the deed, or at least its compliance with the law, so this is welcome legislation.
