Section 5311.07 | Condominium drawings.
(A)(1) A set of drawings shall be prepared for every condominium property that graphically shows the boundaries, location, designation, length, width, and height of each unit; the boundaries, location, designation, and dimensions of the common elements and the limited common elements and exclusive use areas; and the location and dimensions of all appurtenant easements or encroachments.
(2) If the condominium property is not contiguous, the drawings shall show the distances between parcels of land or water slips.
(3) The drawings for commercial units that do not have wall surfaces shall show the monumental perimeter boundaries of those units.
(4) The drawings need not show interior walls or partitions that are not load-bearing.
(B) Each drawing shall bear both of the following:
(1) The certified statement of a registered architect or registered professional engineer that the drawing accurately shows each building or water slip as built or constructed;
(2) The certified statement of a registered professional surveyor that the drawing accurately reflects the location of improvements and recorded easements.
(C) If some, but not all, portions of the condominium property are to be held by unit owners in a leasehold estate, the drawings shall show the location and dimensions of each portion and shall label the portion as leased land or as leased property. If there is more than one portion of leased land or leased property, the drawings shall label each portion in a manner that is different from the labels designating any other portions of the leased land or leased property and different from the identifying number of any unit.
(D) If the condominium property contains any improvements other than units, the drawings or amendments shall indicate which, if any, of the improvements have been begun but have not been substantially completed by the use of the phrase "(NOT YET COMPLETED)."
(E)(1) If any owner of a convertible unit converts all or any portion of a convertible unit into one or more units and common elements, including limited common elements, the owner shall prepare, file, and record drawings as described in divisions (E)(2) and (3) of this section that pertain to the portion of the building, improvement, or structure that constituted the former convertible unit.
(2) The drawings shall show the boundaries, location, designation, length, width, and height of each unit formed out of the former convertible unit; the boundaries, location, designation, and dimensions of the limited common elements appurtenant to each unit; and the boundaries, location, designation, and dimensions of any common element formed out of the former convertible unit.
(3) Each drawing shall bear the certified statement of a registered architect or registered professional engineer that the drawing accurately shows the units, common elements, and appurtenant limited common elements formed out of the former convertible unit.
