A real estate project in which each unit owner has title to a residential lot and building and a nonexclusive easement on the common areas of the project (for example, a clubhouse, pool, playground, entrance/exit, etc). The owner may also have an exclusive easement over some parts of the common areas (for example, a parking space). (See, FNMA Seller/Servicer Guide, Chapter 3, Glossary).
