A form of real estate ownership of a multi-unit housing structure by a non-profit corporation which leases portions of the property to its stockholders. The stockholders are part owners of the corporation; they do not own their own apartments.

Such shareholding by the tenant allows him to occupy a dwelling unit while not possessing direct title to it.
