Common Ways Title Can Be Held

Determining how to take title to your property is a major decision with legal ramifications that may impact you and/or your heirs. The methods of owning real estate are determined by state law and you should consult with an attorney (like Sebring & Associates) or accountant to determine the most advantageous form of ownership for your state-specific situation.

Options include:

  • Sole Ownership
  • Community Property
  • Tenancy by the Entirety
  • Tenancy in Common
  • Corporation
  • Life Estate
  • Trust
  • Joint Tenancy with Right of Survivorship
