Thus, a property may be, for example, in residential or commercial occupation The term is not necessarily tied up with ownership as a house may be owned by a commercial undertaking yet be rented out to a family, in which case it is occupied by a family as its residence, or put another way, the occupancy is residential, or is in residential occupancy.
