Help the community by answering this question:


It depends on each particular property situation and set up.
F.e. if it is a condo or a co-op, you have to read their by-laws and other documents.
You have to find out about the terms of the lease (in writing).
There are different ways of holding title also - fee simple or leasehold.
Sometimes returns are bigger on the properties that others ignore because they don't know much about this type of investment. I suggest to work with a good realtor and a good attorney.

Good luck with your search!

We can't advise you on an investment choice based solely on that information. As an investor, you'll have to determine if the returns on this property is sufficient to justify the extra risks. You won't have to pay property tax but the land owner can change their mind about the use of land at any time.
