As Bay State Commons anticipates the completion of our building, we're also exploring changing our name. In this connection, we'd like to ask a question about naming — specifically, about the relationship of a coho's legal name on condo documents to the name it's known by publicly. Apparently it's common cohousing practice for a coho's public and legal names to be basically the same (e.g., XYZ Cohousing in public, XYZ Condominium on the condo docs). In our case, we're also exploring the alternative: having the legal name on condo docs be different from the name we're known by publicly. So we'd really appreciate feedback from other cohousers. Is this also fairly common practice among cohos? If your community's legal and public names are different, could you share why you did it this way, and do you have any words of experience or advice to share? Also, did you decide to make any legal provision for your public name — e.g., a separate LLC, registering it as a Doing-Business-As name, or such? (State laws will vary, of course.)
