Buying commercial property


I am having an idea of buying a commercial complex along with my friends as me alone can’t fund. Its like 8-10 people invest in a commercial complex and get rent as income. I would be grateful if some one can advise on how it can be executed. Is it better if all the members in the sale deed. The constraint is that most of them are abroad and can not appear in person at the time of registration. Is there any other way as to form a company and buy. Have a common account or so ?
