LAW 515-001 – Property I

Tenancy by the Entirety


Tenancy by the entirety is similar to joint tenancy, but it is only between married couples, and the law sees the two owners as one person.

Tenancy by the entirety does not exist in all states and is usually only the default form of ownership for married couples in regards to real estate.

Tenancy by the entirety has the four unities of joint tenancy, in addition to the fifth unity of marriage.
