    Ownership of someone

    Is this sentence grammatically correct?

    The Property (meaning real estate) is ownership of the Municipality XXX (name of municipality).

    I know that these options would be correct:
    The property is owned by.../The Property is a property of...

    But what about the first one? Thanks in advance!

    Re: Ownership of someone

    Of your three options, the only one that works is "The property is owned by the municipality (or city) of XXX."

    Re: Ownership of someone

    If you want to use "ownership" you would have to say "The property comes under the ownership of [municipality]".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
