How do they control it? Is there lots of paperwork and delay involved? Does it 
affect bank financing?

Can prospective buyers easily figure out if they are eligible? This has been a 
problem with some programs that are based on arcane formulas only a numbers 
person can figure out and eligibility seems to change from month to month.

How are their condo fees calculated?
