AN ACT relative to a declarant's options for condominium expansion.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

192:1  New Paragraph; Condominium Act; Definitions; Improvement.  Amend RSA 356-B:3 by inserting after paragraph XVI the following new paragraph:

XVI-a.  "Improvement" means any addition to condominium land, facilities, or amenities other than condominium units.

192:2  New Paragraph; Conversion of Convertible Spaces.  Amend RSA 356-B:24 by inserting after paragraph IV the following new paragraph:

V.  Until the expiration of the period during which conversion may occur or until actual conversion, whichever occurs first, real estate taxes relative to convertible space shall be assessed against the declarant rather than the unit owners when such space is utilized only for the benefit of the declarant.  No such conversion shall occur after 5 years from the recordation of the declaration, or such shorter period of time period as the declaration may specify, provided, however, that the time limit contained in the declaration may be extended by not more than 5 years by an amendment to the declaration adopted pursuant to RSA 356-B:54, V.
