Most people would have a little knowledge in the purchase of real estate. Usually this has been conducted with a spouse or long term partner.
If this is the case, the property was more than likely purchased as a joint tenancy. This simply means that the ownership of the whole of the land is shared between the two stakeholders.
This style of ownership does not attract a severable share. By this we mean that if a party in this style of agreement should pass away their share automatically goes to the other stakeholder as the surviving owner and not to a third party.
In an investment situation the stakeholders may enter into what is known as tenants in common. This style of agreement allows the ownership of a property to be divided according to the contribution by each stakeholder.
By this we mean that the right of possession, whilst shared, is not physically divided, or necessarily equal in size. At the time of purchase the division must be elected, that is, 60/40, 70/30, for example.
