    Joint Tenancy with Right of Survivorship "Joint Tenants":

  • A form of co-ownership with undivided and equal interests. It is similarly to tenancy in common, except that in joint tenancy, the interest of a deceased co-tenant (co-owner) passes automatically to the surviving joint tenants in equal shares, regardless of the last will of the deceased. Joint tenancy is created by deed, and the fact of the intention to create a joint tenancy with right of survivorship should be stated. Joint tenancy property does not escape death taxes, but it does escape probate and, in that sense, saves money. However, there are disadvantages associated with the tax treatment of joint tenancy property.
    • Joint Venture:

    • A general partnership formed to carry on a specific business project as distinguished from continuing forward from one completed project to another.
      • Judicial Sale:

      • The sale of real estate under court order following a judicial foreclosure. Following the sale, the debtor retains the right of equity of redemption for a period of time, often a year, during which time he may effectively repurchase the property. This lingering equity of redemption is a cloud on the title, and it may be bought and sold as any other interest in real property.
