- joint tenancy with the right of survivorship,
- tenancy in common,
- and tenancy by the entirety.
At death, the interest of the decedent passes to the surviving tenant automatically. This is the right of survivorship. This ownership must be created on purpose. There is one deed, equal interest, survivorship must be defined, and there must be four unities: time, title, possession, and interest.
The name(s) of the beneficiaries can be concealed. In my judgment this is the best way to hold title to your property. Not all states have land trusts. But, if you live in Illinois, Florida, Virginia, North Dakota, Indiana, and Hawaii, you should seriously think about it.
