Common and Joint Tenancy

New York City Attorney Providing Advice on Joint Tenancy and Tenancy in Common Issues

It is important to know the manner in which title to assets or property are held.  Title can be in one person's name alone or the asset can be held in joint tenancy, tenancy by the entirety or as tenants in common.

Each type of ownership has different requirements and consequences, as a New York City joint tenancy lawyer can explain. An advantage to joint tenancy may be easy access to the entire property by both parties along with quick and simple transfer upon the death of one joint owner.  However, a joint tenant can be restricted from transferring or selling his or her interest without the consent of the other owner which may lead to disputes.

The proper and appropriate type of ownership and the consequences of such ownership should be reviewed and determined when the property is first acquired and when a transfer or sale is contemplated. Estate planning considerations are also affected by property ownership.

Tenancy in common joint tenancy issues are important to understand and resolve.

Client Reviews
Jules Haas helped me with managing the process in probate court for my father's estate through to its completion upon the sale of my father's house. He was knowledgeable, efficient, and effective in submitting documentation to the probate court, explaining procedures to me, and advising me as to the progress of my case. His support staff was also very helpful. He made what for me created so much anxiety into something manageable where I could see progress every step of the way. His fees were very reasonable. I am super grateful to him for all the help he has provided and strongly recommend his services.
