As a result of deterioration or obsolescence of condominium premises, unit owners often decide to renovate. These decisions may raise questions significantly different from those encountered in dealing with ordinary condominium expenses. These include matters such as required authorization, protection of dissenters' rights, and financing. This article explores some of these problems and suggests possible solutions. The author concludes that present law, including statues and condominium association bylaws, should differentiate between renovation expenses and those arising from ordinary maintenance and repairs, and should permit special authorization and financing arrangements for renovations.
