Understanding the Various Types of Deeds in California

In California, a variety of deeds cater to different circumstances. Here we will introduce you to the primary ones you might encounter:

  1. Grant Deeds: Often utilized in California, this deed ensures that the property has not been sold to someone else, and there are no undisclosed liens against it.
  2. Quitclaim Deeds: Generally used between family members, this deed transfers any interest the grantor has in the property without any guarantees.
  3. Interspousal Transfer Deeds: Specifically for transferring property between spouses, this deed is frequently used in divorce proceedings to relinquish marital property rights.

Being conversant with the right deed for your situation is vital, and we are here to help illuminate the best path forward, safeguarding your interests at every turn.


Types of Tenancy in California

In California, several tenancies exist and arise under different circumstances. Here we will introduce you to the primary ones you might encounter:

  1. Joint Tenancy: Often utilized in California, this tenancy generally arises when two (2) more persons are owners of a certain real property and allows for the survivor of the two to take ownership 100% upon the death of the deceased title holder.  A joint tenancy can also be utilized to transfer real property upon death to avoid probate; however, probate issues can arise in simultaneous death circumstances. Further, this tenancy can be severed upon certain acts by owners and one should seek legal advice before deciding to affect title to a real property held in joint tenancy.
  2. Tenancy in Common: This tenancy arises when two (2) or more persons are owners of a certain real property.  Unlike a real property held in joint tenancy, holding title in tenancy in common allows for the deceased co-owner’s estate to inherit her share upon her death. However, if the deceased co-owner passes away and does not have trust, her share likely would be required to be probated in California.

Understanding tenancies for your situation is vital, and we are here to help safeguard your wishes as to how your real property will pass upon your death.
