SURVIVIORSHIP APPLICATIONS

A survivorship application is a document which outlines your rights and protects multiple owners of a single property in case something happens to you or someone listed on your property title.

RIGHT OF SURVIVORSHIP

Right of survivorship is a right of full ownership granted to tenants who are listed on the same property when one of them dies. Upon the death of a joint tenant, the surviving owner(s) are automatically granted equal portions of the home that was once also owned by the deceased. A right of survivorship overrides whatever is written in the deceased persons  will or any other process that divides their estate.
