Some states define the common tenancy agreement as standard property for married couples, while others use the lease in the common property model. A third model, used in about 25 states and the District of Columbia, is an overall lease (TbyE) in which each spouse has an equal and undivided interest in the property. The second, more common way to partially reduce the risk of group loan resale is that the ICT agreement involves a fair and balanced approach allowing each owner to refinance himself as well. To understand why this is important, imagine the difficult situation of an owner in an ICT group loan who has to move to a growing family or workplace, but who has signed an ICT agreement that requires unanimous agreement for refinancing. When the owner entered ICT, he/she expected to stay in his or her home for at least 30 years and thought that if there was a need to move, the other owners would certainly understand and collaborate. In case one or more of the other owners (although friendly) do not want to face the wrath of refinancing, or perhaps no longer want to qualify for a credit. Our general practice leasing contract includes general advice and advice, ICT agreement preparation, loan documents and ongoing advice for developers, sellers, brokers and ICT owners, either a package or an hour. We have a well-deserved reputation for making calls in a timely manner and providing fast transit times. But more importantly, we are known for finding creative solutions, alleviating fears and finding commonalities for transactions and relationships to work. Although our role usually begins at the time when the common lease is formed or sold for the first time, we are determined to be available throughout the life of each ICT to solve problems.

A good tic agreement should be complete and well organized and not “short and simple.” The tic agreement should be seen as an insurance policy against costly, tedious and relationship-destroying disputes. Although the vast majority of ICT groups are well understood and should never refer to their ICT agreements, the risk of having to resort to the ICT contract should not be ignored, even if the co-owners are long-standing friends (or family) and have always got along well.
Like roommates, spouses or registered national partners have the same interests in all condominiums. As such, any registered spouse or national partner has the same right to own, manage and control the property. Unlike joint tenants and roommates, registered spouses and national partners are in trust and therefore owe each other a “highest good faith and fair trade” obligation. This includes a duty of care and loyalty in all matters relating to the common property in question.
