TIC is a form of vesting title to property owned by any two or more individuals in undivided fractional
interests. These fractional interests may be unequal in quantity or duration and may arise at different times. Each tenant in common owns a share of the property, is entitled to a comparable portion of the income from the property and must bear an equivalent share of expenses. Each co-tenant may sell, lease or will to his/her heir that share of the property belonging to him/her. For example: Bruce Buyer, a single man, as to an undivided 3/4 interest and Penny Purchaser, a single woman, as to an undivided 1/4 interest, as tenants in common.

TIC can also mean a type of real estate investment, meaning buying part of say a shopping center or apartment building. Like a REIT (real estate investment trust).

Tenants in common. It is a way of holding title, such as joint tenants, single man/woman, married sole and separate, in a trust, etc...
