Hello all, There's an area of my town that has several streets of duplex homes. I've been looking at a few as rental properties, but it never seems like both halves of a duplex are for sale at the same time. I'd like to pick up a unit or two, but I'm concerned about owning half a home. Does anyone own part of a duplex? How do you handle exterior appearance, foundation repairs, etc? What happens if Joe Homeowner in the attached unit doesn't pay his property taxes? Any other pitfalls?
