property ownership can be a great solution for people who want to own a home,
especially for first-time buyers. But joint ownership can limit your rights and
options -- not only while you own the property, but also when you want to
transfer ownership to an heir or another buyer. There are three major forms of
joint property ownership (or "concurrent ownership") -- tenancy in
common, joint tenancy, and tenancy by the entirety.
Tenancy in Common (TIC)
in common (sometimes called a "TIC") is the most popular form of
concurrent property ownership.
