Planned Unit Development (PUD)

A real estate project in which each unit owner has title to a residential lot and building and a nonexclusive easement on the common areas of the project. The owner may have an exclusive easement over some parts of the common areas (for example, a parking space). Fannie Mae does not purchase or securitize mortgages secured by PUD projects; it does purchase or securitize mortgages on individual units in a project.
