Tenants in Common or Joint Tenants?

The manner of holding has implications for your estate planning.

If you are buying a property it is important to have the right manner of holding (or property ownership). This decision has a clear impact on your estate planning and how your share of a property is distributed after you die. Blended families should carefully consider what manner of holding they have as this may cause issues with your estate.
