Default Re: Base and other property

Use Independent Income. That is leveled, and on top of that, if the party members own the buildings jointly, their monthly income from the rents (which will be a pittance given the quality of the buildings) is to be shared among them. It can easily go down to 1 point per character.

Thus they have a small additional income beyond what they earn with their adventuring and day jobs; they formally own the buildings but can't make a lot of money by just selling them (it's against the Advantage description, and you can come up with some in-game explanation such as an ancient law against that or whatever); and if they manage to improve the property, they can spend CPs on increasing their Independent Income advantage, thus getting more money per month out of it.

That other Advantage, Base, is important when you want the place not to be linked with you.
