Yes, all 50 states, in some form or another, have joint tenancy with right of survivorship in their property laws.

Most property can be owned by a joint tenancy in Mississippi. When one owner dies their interest disappears and the property immediately becomes the sole property of the surviving owner. The tenancy must be specifically created as joint tenants with the right of survivorship.

How do you know if you have right of survivorship on a property you own with a non-spouse?

A right of survivorship must be set forth in the deed by which you acquired your property. If the deed doesn't state you received the property as "joint tenants", or as "joint tenants with the right of survivorship" which is required in some jurisdictions, then you own as tenants in common and have no survivorship rights. If you review your deed and the answer isn't clear you should consult with the attorney who represented you at your closing who can draft a confirmatory deed with survivorship rights if necessary.
