What are the types of Ownership and Title Holding?
Depending upon the contracts, the titles can be held in many different ways, some of them according to Illinois law are,
- Tenancy in Common – In such a case, co-owners of the real estate hold an undivided interest in the property and transfers can occur over the property possessed by the tenant. There is no right of survivorship.
- Joint Tenancy – The owners have an undivided interest in the property and transfer can occur without the agreement of all parties. If one tenant dies, their ownership is transferred to the survivor.
- Tenants by Entirety – This can only be done by legally married spouses. Neither one can transfer his/her interest without both parties. If one spouse dies, the property automatically goes to the surviving spouse.
