We have several units that are rental units, bought by people who live  
nearby but not in our community. These owners do participate on occasion in  
community meetings, and other community events.  There have been some  problems 
some of the rental units, as some of the tenants have not  been participatory 
in the cohousing community. I'd make sure that you have in  place some clear 
expectations of renters (as well as owners) and maybe a cap on  how many of 
these rental units (not owner occupied) you want to  allow in the community. 
Some of our renters are wonderful participating  community members, others have 
not been. I believe part of the problem is  definitely our community's lack of 
a clear participation agreement even for  owners who occupy their units. Our 
membership team is now working on this after  most of us have lived here close 
to two years or more. We have also asked owners  who rent, to attach an 
expectation agreement (of participation in the community)  to their lease.  A 
in progress!!!
