Severance of Tenancy
What is Severance of Tenancy? - You can own property a number of ways from Jointly, Soley, or Tenants in Common. Most married couples or partners own their properties jointly meaning they each own one hundred per cent of the property and if one of them passed away the survivor automatically owns the whole property. When it comes to estate planning this isn't what you want if you are looking to protect your property. Ideally, you should own your property Tenants in Common meaning you both own a defined share each normally as a married couple 50-50. This ensures that if one of you passes away the survivor isn't left owning the whole property instead of a share in the property. This is important from an estate planning point of view because it protects the property if later the survivor should need to go into care the property can't be sold to pay for that care because the survivor would only own half a house and there is no value to half a house.
