fractional interest

Definition

A share in the ownership of real estate. For example, a large property may be too expensive to maintain by one owner so instead of buying the whole property, a person may purchase a share of it along with four other people, becoming the owner of 1/5 of the property. Each owner shares in the maintenance and taxes and they take turns in actually occupying the property.
