Property that is individually owned passes to the owner's heirs under their last will or according to the state laws of intestacy if there is no will. When a person dies owning an interest in real estate their estate must be probated in order for legal title to pass to their heirs. In this case, the decedent's one-third interest would pass to their heirs.

If the property cannot be reasonably divided, the court will appoint a commissioner to sell the property. The legal costs and costs of selling the property will be deducted from the proceeds when the property has been sold and the net proceeds will be divided equally amongst the co-owners.

In Oregon should a woman and man living together change deeds from tenants in entirety to tenants in common?

Tenants by the entirety is a tenancy reserved for people who are married. If two people who are not married acquire property as tenants by the entirety the tenancy would fail. If two unmarried people want to create a survivorship in each other they should hold the property as joint tenants with the right of survivorship. That way, if one died the other would automatically own the property.

What does tenants in common on deed look like?

When two or more people purchase land, they can own it as 'joint tenants' or as 'tenants in common'. If they own it as joint tenants, they each own an equal share of the property. If one joint tenant dies, his/her share is extinguished and the remaining joint tenant(s) is/are the owner(s). The share of the deceased joint tenant does not become part of his/her estate. A husband and wife will usually own a property as joint tenants. If they own it as tenants in common, the share owned by each does not have to be equal. If one tenant in common dies, that share of the property becomes part of the estate of the deceased tenant in common. Usually the deed itself will state that the owners are either joint tenants or tenants in common.

If two people are named on a deed can one decide to sell?

When a property is co-owned by two or more people as tenants in common or joint tenants each owner can only sell their own interest in the property. They cannot transfer the interest of the other owners. If three people own a property and one wants to sell, that one can try to find a buyer for their share and that buyer will share the property with the other two owners. However, not a lot of buyers would want to share a property with strangers. Each joint owner has the right to the use and possession of the entire property.A better solution when one joint owner wants to sell is for the other owner(s) to make them a fair offer and buy them out.
