Master Condominium Deed

The Horizontal Property Act of 1962 (OAG 62-517) does not require the establishment of a separate deed book, although clerks may do so at their discretion if circumstances make it desirable.

The master deed establishes a Horizontal Property Regime per KRS 381.815 and 381.810. Definitions regarding horizontal property are found in KRS 381.810 and recording requirements are listed in KRS 381.835.

The document must have:

  • The name of the property owner (KRS 382.200)
  • The name of the condominium (KRS 382.200 & 382.335)
  • Description of the land (KRS 382.835)
  • General description and the number of each unit (KRS 381.835)
  • Preparation statement (KRS 382.335)
  • A set of the floor plans must be filed simultaneously with the master deed. These are recorded in the condominium plat records, or the regular plat records, if a separate set of plat records is not maintained. (KRS 381.835)
    The property owner must sign the document, and the signature must be acknowledged (notarized). (KRS 382.130)

The clerk shall request a return mail address (KRS 382.240)

Indexing information: The document is indexed in the general index to deeds. (It is also indexed in the condominium index, if a separate one is kept.) The first party is the property owner. The second party is the name of the condominium.

Legal Process Tax does not apply to this document.
