John P. McDonough, Secretary of State
Condominium's Public Offering Statement
Under Maryland law, a condominium
developer is required to submit to the Office of the Secretary of State a public offering statement
which includes a copy of the condominium's proposed declaration, by-laws, rules, and other
documents relating to the administration of the condominium. This public offering statement is
reviewed by the Office to ensure compliance with the Real Property Article,
Title 11 of the Annotated Code of Maryland.
Although the public offering statement is available for inspection at the Office of the Secretary of State, the condominium's declaration,
by-laws, and plat are also available from the Clerk of the Circuit Court in the county in which the
condominium regime is located.
