    Condominia would be the Latin plural.

    The root noun is 'dominium', which is a second declension neuter noun meaning 'ownership.' The 'con' is a prefix meaning 'together', so it is something with 'ownership together'.

    Plurals of 2nd declension neuter nouns are formed by dropping the '-um' and adding '-a', so the plural of dominium is dominia, and plural of condominium is condominia.

    The 's' plural condominiums is based on English rules for plurals.

    Condominiums & condominia, both are correct, of course latin is condominia.

    'In international law, a condominium (plural either condominia, as in Latin, or condominiums...' (quoted from the source given below)
