It is important to describe the volume of the shop as being privately-owned to distinguish between the privately-owned volumes in a building and jointly- or communally-owned volumes of the ‘κοινόχρηστων χωρών’. In any case, ‘ιδιόκτητο’ means ‘privately-owned’ [Source: Oxford Greek-English Dictionary and Magenta Greek-English Dictionary].
