In the US, "elementos comunes" are called "common areas" (google "condominium" + "common areas" = 288,000 hits). Example:

Condominium ownership involves real property in which each owner has an exclusive interest in his or her unit in addition to an undivided interest with all other unit owners in the condominium's common areas and facilities.

Massachusetts G.L. c. 183A, § 1.
