Fee Simple vs. Condominium: There are generally two types of ownership in a townhome community, fee simple and condominium. Essex is considered to be a fee simple community. Fee simple means that each owner owns the land and home and that the association owns nothing, making the homeowner responsible for the maintenance of their home. Although the homeowner is responsible, your association reserves money to replace roofs roofs, siding and other items.
The Essex community also provides maintenance of the landscaping (mowing, edging, blowing, etc.). This service is simply maintenance and does not provide replacement of grass, shrubs, or any other plants. Replacement is the responsibility of the homeowner.
