Re: CoHo Condo Fees

Just for reference, below are the regular utility and building maintenance 
contract line items from my previous community (as of 2008), all of which are 
paid for from condo fees. This does not include repairs or supplies, such as 
light bulbs or janitorial supplies. This is a large multi-family building with 
lots of advanced building technology. Most cohos won't have anywhere near as 
many building-related budget items. We knew nothing about any of this when we 
moved in and our management company was useless. To say there was a learning 
curve is an understatement.

The cost for all this is spread across 67 units, so the condo fees per unit are 
pretty reasonable (or they were when I left in 2008).
