JOINT TENANTS OR TENANTS IN COMMON?

Tue, 19 Apr 16
When purchasing real property with another person (or several others), you will need to instruct your solicitor how you wish to hold the property after settlement. Broadly, you can hold the property either as ‘Joint Tenants’ or as ‘Tenants in Common’, however within these two options, there are many different configurations which can be tailored to individual circumstances. There are many reasons why one type of holding may suit you better than the other including personal living circumstances, family circumstances, financial or tax reasons, future plans and even health circumstances all issues impacting the decision. Generally, a tenancy in common is the only holding which allows you absolute control over who will receive your share upon death. When a tenant in common dies, their share of the property passes in accordance with their instructions as set out in their will (subject to any family provision claim) or otherwise under the rules of intestacy. It is imperative if you hold any property as a tenant in common that you have a valid and enforceable will, which specifies the person or the organisation which is to receive the benefit of your share of the property.
