The Condominium Management Authority (CMA) organized an awareness program on various aspects of condominium living and the use of common elements and amenities for state officials involved in assisting the CMA and management corporations in the maintenance of condominiums. Several resource persons made presentations.

Officers of Local Govt. Agencies, Land Ministry, Police Dept., Divisional Secretariats, and Provincial Councils participated. Chairman of the CMA C A Wijeyeweere said the awareness program was to make stakeholders aware of the condominium style of living, without causing hindrance to neighbouring apartment owners.

He said it was important that the public know what a condominium property is - a defined space which is shown as an independent parcel in a condominium plan which is designed for independent use. Condominiums available in Sri Lanka are Residential, Commercial & Mixed Development.

He said structural components - foundation, coloumns and main load bearing walls cannot be directly attributed to any single dwelling unit. Components meant for common use - staircases, corridors, lifts, fire escapes, garages, community halls, play ground access road, motors and pumps are considered as common elements and amenities in a condominium.
