Laminate in condo subfloor Please help

Hello I would greatly appricate some help.

I have recently purchased 750 square feet of quick step country 2nds. I am looking to install in my condo. My condo is above grade with a 8inch concrete subfloor. I was trying to see if anyone can tell my if I could just use a 6mil cork rather than a 3-1. I understand about moisture barrier but i taped down a piece of plastic and found no sweating. Not really worried about warrent bc there 2nds and ther is none.

Please help

You can do whatever you want but if you want to eliminate possible issues why wouldn't you use a moisture barrier. Especially with 750sqft. Forget warranty, think about the hassle if something were to go wrong.
Using cork is fine, but put down a 6 mil poly underlay first. The poly is dirt cheap so cost shouldn't be an issue. Don't put a 3in1 down and then the cork underlay. Just buy the poly sheet.

Do you have a downstairs neighbor? If so consult your HOA to get their recommendation.
