What Is A Tenancy In Common?

A tenancy in common is another form of co­ownership. It is the ownership of an asset by two or more individuals together, but without the rights of survivorship that are found in a joint tenancy. Thus, on the death of one co­owner, his or her interest will not pass to the surviving owner or owners but will pass according to his or her will or, if there is no will, by the law determining heirs.
