How Should I Take Title on My Property? With Melissa D’Ellena

Melissa D’Ellena from D’Ellena Law talks about the different ways to take title and what you should do depending on your relationship or situation.  A few details from the video are outlined below.  So, how should you take ownership to property?  Melissa explains the recommended ways to do this, which are outlined below:

3 Ways to Take Ownership of a Property

1. Tenants in Common

Individuals have a 50% interest in the property.  If anything happens to either person, the ownership passes down to someone- usually blood-related.  This is often used in an investment context.

2. Joint Tenancy

Two persons own the property.  If anything were to happen to either person, ownership would default to the joint owner.

3. Tenants by the Entirety

Joint tenants with some added protection.  Reserved for legally married couples.
