Our experienced team is on hand to advise you about the best way to own your property. Tax or care fee planning can play a part in this decision. If you own your home as joint tenants and one of you dies then the share of the one to die will pass automatically to the survivor. However, if you have put planning in place - perhaps by a Will - to protect against the impact of tax or the cost of care, it is important that you own the home as tenants in common so that it does not pass to the survivor. Please ask us for more information.
