"TIC" is an acronym for Tenants in Common: Where you own a "fraction" of the whole. I hope this helps :)

Tenants in Common, it's a way to hold title. It is very popular in San Francisco. You could go to http://www.sirkin.com for information but it will be speaking to the SF audience. I was not aware that it had spread to Hawaii

Tenancy in common is one way of holding title to a property. There are other options as well. It is best advised to speak with a lawyer regarding which option works best for you and the others who share title. If you hold title alone, it's not an issue. Please see the link for a complete explanation of each method.

Hi Corncurl,

This hasn't caught on very much in Hawaii. It was widely used on the mainland the last 10 years, however. You could say it's a fractional interest in a property. Sometimes it is used for trusts, or partnerships, however a TIC could be an individual that owns 1/4th of a property, for example. I'm sure the concept will become popular again, because it is a terrific way to own part of a property, especial commercial properties.
