DEFINITION of 'Landominium'

A type of residential property in which the owner owns both the home and the land on which the home is built. The home is a part of a community, like a condominium, where the landscaping, maintenance and other services are provided by a homeowners' association.

BREAKING DOWN 'Landominium'

Landominium communities often provide several amenities to their members. Such amenities include, tennis courts, man-made lakes, club houses and walking trails. However, these extra benefits can be offset by restrictions applied to residents by the homeowners' association.
