If you live in California, “tenancy by the entirety” isn’t really something you need to think about. It’s something that exists in other states. It doesn’t apply to us here in California.
In states that recognize a “tenancy by the entirety” see it kind of like a joint tenancy with the right of survivorship. Still, there are a few unique characteristics. In a “tenancy by the entirety” situation in other states, neither spouse can sever the tenancy by the entirety simply by selling their interest in the property.
So, in California real estate the big question is whether a husband and wife should own property as “joint tenancy,” as “tenants in common,” or even as “community property with the right of survivorship.” These questions can best be answered by an estate attorney. On thing is for sure though, you don’t need to also throw “tenancy by the entirety” into the mix.
