Hello, Patricia!

Yes, common elements in a condominium, for example, include heating and air conditioning systems, pipes, hot water systems, light fixtures on common ground, security systems, and electrical systems. Aside from these elements that are not so obvious, you have lobbies, locker areas, garages, technical rooms, walkways, the roof, and many other elements that are parts of the condo complex and belong to all owners.
