What a wonderful gift! I have no information or experience but obviously 
consult a lawyer. The Association (or whatever legal designation you have) 
would own the property. Our legal documents do have general provisions for 
selling the common areas that are owned by all of us in percentages.

One use is by the community at large, not rented to a household that couldn’t 
otherwise afford to live there. Or rented on a short term basis to people 
wanting to experience cohousing. DC has lots of people in town from all over 
the world who have 6-12 month fellowships or research grants, some 24 months, 
who need places to rent and welcome the community setting.
