Attorney at Law
Unless there is language to the contrary, two grantees of title to a property are presumed to be tenants-in-common, i.e., each grantee holds an undivided half interest in the property. If your customers want title to the property to automatically pass from one grantee to the other upon one of their deaths, then the grantees should provide that in the deed by creating a right of survivorship in the other grantee. Otherwise, each grantee's interests will pass to their heirs or beneficiaries when that grantee dies. In fact, the real estate contract should specifically state that intent. Unless specifically ordered, real estate documents prepared by the title company and their lawyers will generally provide for tenants-in-common. So, it is good practice to advise your customers who are not husband and wife, i.e., siblings, partners, or otherwise unrelated, to specifically request that they be listed as grantees with a right of survivorship if that is their intent when acquiring the property, and there will be no question as to whom a deceased grantee's interest pass.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR BUSINESS!!
