Re: Seeking sample condominium docs (Declaration, Bylaws, Rules and Regs)

A suggestion -- start with whatever the standard is in your state for condo or 
townhouse or PUD, whatever your actual legal structure will be.  Cohousing is 
rarely (if ever) a legal structure, and the declaration and other documents are 
legal documents.  You will save time, money, and aggravation if you have your 
documents line up wherever possible with the legal standard in your state, 
instead of starting from scratch or from starting from a set of cohousing 

--sue (speaking from hard experience)
