The way the property is titled determines who takes ownership.

If the property is titled as Joint Tenants or Joint Tenants With

Right of Survivorship, the surviving person(s) named on the deed

receive the entire property and it is not subject to probate

distribution. If the property is titled as Tenants-In-Common, it is

subject to probate distribution as required under the laws of the

state in which the property is located.
