Leasehold Condominiums


Leasehold Condominiums - State Bar of Texas 40th Annual Advance Real Estate Law, co-authors Bob Burton and Preston Patten

Prior to the approval of the Uniform Condominium Act by the Uniform Law Commission in 1977, few state condominium enabling statutes included specific provisions on submission of a leasehold interest to the condominium form of ownership.1 In 1994, Texas adopted the Texas Uniform Condominium Act (the "Act")2 using the Uniform Condominium Act as its base.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
