Actually what I'm daunted by isn't just the work, but by negotiating with
lenders.  I see the conversation going like this:
us: Hey BigBank, the owner of this unit added a deck and thus increased
their proportion of the condo fees they owed.
BigBank: You mean you increased our liability in the case of foreclosure?
 No way.  The owner will need to refi at a bazillion percent interest to
make us agree to that!
us: Um...okay, never mind about that.
BigBang: Actually since you brought it up, now we know, we're going to pull
some legal maneuvers that put the owner in a bind, bwahahaha.
us: Well...fuck.
