Emerging RE strategy for multi-unit properties - Tenants In Common (TIC’s) 

Learn about a real estate strategy that allows units to be bought and sold like condos (without city approval). TIC stands for “Tenants In Common” and is a way to hold title when two or more people co-own. With Tenants in Common ownership the interest of each co-owner is distinct, and can be separately sold, transferred, or willed to heirs. With Tenants in Common, you own a fraction of the whole property.

What does this mean for YOU as an investor? If you take two side-by-side identical apartment buildings, one has been converted to condos, the other is owned as TIC, you would not be able to see the difference. They look the same and day-to-day operations are the same. In a TIC, a buyer purchases a share of the actual property and a private tenancy-in-common agreement gives the buyer the exclusive right to occupy a specific unit. Each buyer has a loan and is responsible for their share of the property tax. AND this strategy…Does not require city approval (to be verified in your city).

What else? Every have an issue dividing a lot? Why wait for city approval if a TIC agreement can manage co-ownership of the lot?
