Holding Title

Five Methods of Holding Title:
- Tenancy in Common
- Sole Ownership
- Community Property
- Joint Tenancy
- Community Property with Right of Survivorship Tenancy in Common
The following are definitions of common vesting as an informational overview. Consumers should not rely on these as legal definitions. The Association urges real property purchasers to carefully consider their titling decision prior to closing, and to seek counsel should they be unfamiliar with the most suitable ownership choice for their particular situation.

Sole Ownership
Sole ownership may be described as ownership by an individual or other entity capable
of acquiring title. Examples of common vesting in cases of sole ownership are:
- A single man or woman
- An unmarried man or woman
- A married man or woman as his or her sole and separate property
The title company insuring title will require the spouse of a married man or woman acquiring title to specifically disclaim or relinquish his or her right, title and interest in the property. New Pinehurst real estate in golf communities.

Co-Ownership
Title to property owned by two or more persons may be vested as follows:

Community Property

A form of vesting title to property owned by husband and wife during their marriage which they intend to own together. Community property is distinguished from separate property, which is property acquired before marriage, by separate gift or bequest, after legal separation, or which is agreed to be owned only by one spouse.

Joint Tenancy
Joint Tenancy is a form of vesting title to property owned by two or more persons, who may or may not be married, in equal interest, subject to the right of survivorship in the surviving joint tenant(s). Title must have been acquired at the same time, by the same conveyance, and the document must expressly declare the intention to create joint tenancy estate. When a joint tenant dies, title to the property is automatically conveyed by operation of the law to the surviving joint tenant(s). Therefore, joint tenancy property is not subject to disposition by will.

Tenancy in Common
A form of vesting title to property owned by any two individuals in undivided fractional interests. These fractional interests may be unequal in quantity or duration and may arise at different times. Each tenant in common owns a share of the property, is entitled to a comparable portion of the income from the property and must bear equivalent share of expenses. Each co-tenant may sell, lease or will his/her heir that share of the property belonging to him/her.

Community Property with Right of Survivorship
A form of vesting title to property owned by husband and wife during their marriage which they intend to own together. Right of Survivorship avoids probate. Mutual consent required for transfer. Decedent's interest automatically passes to surviving spouse due to Right of Survivorship. Surviving spouse may have tax advantage.

Other Ways of Vesting Title Include:

A Corporation
A corporation is a legal entity, created under state law, consisting of one or more shareholders but regarded under law as having existence and personality separate from such shareholders.

A Partnership
A partnership is an association of two or more persons who can carry on business for profit as co-owners, as governed by the Uniform Partnership Act. A partnership may hold title to real property in the name of the partnership. New Pinehurst homes in golf communities.

A Trust
A trust is an arrangement whereby legal title to property is transferred by the grantor to a person called a trustee, to be held and managed by that person for the benefit of the people specified in the trust agreement, called beneficiaries.
In cases of corporate, partnership, or trust ownership , the title company will require that it be furnished legal documents so that it may satisfy itself as to ownership rights of the parties to the transaction and any limitations which may exist on the sale, transfer or encumbrance of the property. Required documents may include corporate articles and bylaws, certificate of partnership and trust agreements.
