Which one of the following is appropriate? If both are okay, which one is more conservative?
1. 'The properties were acquired under an exit clause in their ownership agreements.
2. 'The properties were acquired under exit clauses in their ownership agreements.'
There are two properties, and each has a seperate ownership agreement. But the agreements have similar exit clauses.
If the agreements are substantially the same, with the same exit clause in each, then "the exit clause in their ownership agreements" is correct.
"Exit clauses" would indicate that each agreement had a differently worded exit clause.
