There are a few wholly-owned and wholly-let apartment complexes in Dublin. I lived in one for a while

At the outset it was comforting to know that it wouldn’t be pot luck with regard to maintenance, etc. There was a 24-hour number to call if things went wrong. A fridge went and was replaced as soon as practical.

It seemed to work. This kind of thing would be impossible in separately-owned and -managed apartments.
