condominium declaration
Explanation:
This would have to pertain to an Eigentumswohnung - a Teilungserklärung is part of the documents for my condo in Germany. In my opinion, the best English equivalent would be condominium declaration. While Google did turn up a small number of hits on division declaration, they all originated in German sites.

The following might be a useful reference:
You also become a joint-co-owner, with the owners of all the other units in the condominium development, of a share of the land on which the building is located and all areas of the building outside the individual units. All of these areas, which are defined in the Condominium Declaration and are identified on a survey attached to the Declaration, are known as "common elements."

You and all other unit owners share the right to use the common elements subject to reasonable regulations as well as responsibility for their maintenance. As a condominium owner, you are a member of a condominium association comprised of all unit owners. The association has jurisdiction over all the common elements. Your rights, obligations and responsibilities are defined in the Condominium Declaration and in by-laws for your condominium development. Sometimes the Condominium Association hires a professional management company or manager to take care of the day-to-day operations of the condominium, while other condominiums are self-managed.

disagree  Kim Metzger: Teilungserklärung - nothing to do with bye-laws. It's a shared ownership deed.
