Tenants in Common

Tenants in Common: A way of owning property in which two or more owners all “share” ownership of the property. The owners can own various percentages of the whole property, unlike joint tenants which each own an equal share. When one owner dies, his or her share does not “automatically” go to the other owner(s), because tenancies in common do not have a survivorship provision like joint tenancies.
