A residential condominium Unit Owner is both the sole owner of the portion of a building which encloses his or her living quarters (a "Unit"), and one of many mutual owners of common facilities which service his and other living quarters and of common areas which a Unit Owner may use and enjoy along with owners of other Units (the "Common Elements") .
"Common Elements" means all portions of the Condominium other than the "Units" (the interior living space of the condo, the garage, and the attic over the condo.)
"Limited Common Elements" means a portion of the Common Elements allocated by the Declaration and/or Declaration Plan, or by the operation of Section 3202 (2) or (4) of Pennsylvania's Uniform Condominium Act for the exclusive use of one or more but fewer than all of the Units.

The Pennsylvania Uniform Condominium Act (UCA) (68 Pa. C.S. §§ 3101 to. 3414) was adopted in 1980 to govern the formation and operation of condominiums. Prior to the UCA, condominiums in Pennsylvania were governed by the since-repealed Unit Property Act.
