What Is A PUD Home
PUD stands for Planned Unit Development. Essentially, a PUD home is a single-family home (fee simple ownership) that is part of the condo/townhome community. You have the same privileges as owners of the other condo/townhome units. You are part of the association and you pay a monthly maintenance fee as well. The fee will probably be much lower, since PUDs are responsibly for their homes total maintenance inside and out. Unlike the condo/townhouse owner, they are only responsible for the inside of the their unit.
As a PUD owner, you are still subject to the rules and regulations of the association. If you want to paint your home and the association doesn’t like the color, you don’t paint your home that color. The same goes for major home improvements.
