What is tenancy in common?

A tenancy in common is a type of joint property ownership wherein all owners own an undivided interest in the whole property; however, these interests do not have to be in equal shares. Also, the tenants in common do not have rights of survivorship. This means that when one dies, that person's share in the property goes to his or her named heirs or beneficiaries.
