Shared purchase of homes

Aren't there standard arrangements for buying property together; namely
tenants-in-common and joint tenants. Any lawyer or real estate person can
explain these two with the advantages and disadvantages of both. I suppose
if the property is owned as a cooperative that is a different matter, where
shares are involved. But I think only one cohousing community in N. America
is structured as a cooperative (though Berkeley came close), so I'm
assuming that San Juan CoHo is not structured that way.
