No. It all depends on the investors goals; level of control desired and risk tolerance. One of the key drawbacks tenant-in-common form of ownership is control. While the investor has a proportional vote on key issues they do not have total control. In exchange for this loss of control the investor can more easily diversify and invest in properties that would normally require hands on management with little actual management responsibility. Ultimately the safety and performance of the investor’s money comes down to the quality of the asset being invested in whether owned as a tenant-in-common or a sole ownership property.
