    "Flat" is the British word for what Americans call an "apartment". It's a place that you pay for month by month- you don't own it. A condominium can be the same type of housing- one unit in a large building- but you own it and can sell it, possibly for a profit, when you move.

    Apartment and flats are the same thing, it's just that in the US, apartment is used while in the UK, flat is used instead. Now an apartment/flat, you can rent one but a condominium, you can own one.

    You own a condo and rent a flat/apt.

    Apartments or flats you lease or rent as a tenant, condominiums you either lease or rent but you also can own ir have a mortgage on and can eventually B pay off the mortgage. On any of them you may or may not be responsible for cutting the grass or weeds. That depends on the terms of the rental agreement or lease.
