QUESTION

What is joint tenancy?

 

ANSWER

Joint tenancy is when individuals own undivided shares in a property. Often, spouses hold property as joint tenants. All joint tenants must agree to a sale, to protect each other from having their property sold without their knowledge. If a joint tenant dies, the other joint tenant inherits their share in the property.
There is also tenancy in common, which allows individuals to own undivided shares in a property. All of these types of ownership can become complicated, and the advice of a competent real estate attorney is essential to a real estate buyer.
