What is joint tenancy?

A joint tenancy is a type of joint property ownership wherein all owners own equal interests. Also, each joint tenant has a right of survivorship, meaning that when one joint tenant dies, the other joint tenants will receive the deceased tenant’s interest in the property in proportional amounts. To be joint tenants, all owners must be named as grantees in the same property deed.
