Owners of land are considering inviting others to build additional, separate residences on the property.

Where can I find resources about this kind of situation? eg. Legal options for sharing land, etc?

Diane Christian's Creating a Life Together has the best overview of land purchasing and sharing options written from the point of view of building a community.

Nolo Press has the best guides for all legal issues for specific states. Laws in each state are different.

Once you understand the options and the approach that might work for your group, you can look for the specific legal structure in your state that will accomplish your goal.
