Hi, all.  I hope that this question hasn't been discussed to death, but I
volunteered to ask it of this group at my very first cohousing meeting last
night <g>.

What kinds of legal entities have groups just starting out formed themselves
into?  What are the advantages and disadvantages?  Does what state you're
located in make a difference?  We're in Washington State.

As one in the group who knows much more than I said:

"We are currently looking at Limited Liability Corporations (LLCs) or a
"Homeowners Association" structure.  We are planning to use condo structure,
rather than cooperative structure for ownership, and we are planning to use
a developer rather than being self-developers."

Any responses are more than welcome, and if it's been done to death, private
email is fine.
