A condo is a dwelling unit. Just keep in mind that there a “common areas” which will be handled by the Association.
There are not many differences to the inspection but here are some points to consider:
Access to roof for A/C Inspection (if on the roof)
Check for Concrete Spalling at the unit Balcony if above the second floor.
Remember the Main Disconnect for the power is usually in the Utility Room. Get access
Depending on age and location FPE panels are common if it is old.
Water Heater requires a Pan
Check Shower Pan
Check exit widows - Must allow for emergency escape
I would NOT let the "codes" comment scare you or stop you...you will never know all of them in time to do a condo.
