Condominiums, Reform, and the Unit Ownership Act

Robert G. Natelson, University of Montana School of Law


This article assesses the Montana Unit Ownership Act (UOA), the condominium statute adopted by the Montana legislature in the 1960s. Part II sketches the nature and history of condominium ownership. Part II provides the history, organization, language, and essential purpose of UOA. Part IV offers a philosophy for reform and concludes that the Montana legislature should amend the UOA rather than replace it. Part V makes detailed recommendations for such reform.
