Vesting and Title

Vesting is assuming a certain kind of ownership, or title, over your property. There are many kinds of vesting available in Nevada. Knowing what is right for you is important when there is a personal property you want to invest in. The primary ways are sole ownership or co-ownership, when the property is owned jointly by two or more people. Sole Ownership When one person owns the home. The owner is either single, married, unmarried (previously married, divorced, widowed), or a domestic partner. If the owner passes away, their his/her heirs inherit the property. Co-Ownership Joint Tenancy: When two or more co-owners take equal percentage ownership. If one owner dies, the property goes to the remaining owner(s). A joint tenant cannot get their property to go to their heirs after they die, but they can sell his/her interest. Community Property: This is property owned by married couples. If one spouse dies, probate is required unless there is a right of survivorship clause. Tenants in Common: This option is similar to joint tenancy, except tenants can will or sell their property and can decide what percentage they want. Also, unlike joint tenancy, there is no right of survivorship, meaning they can will their property to their heirs after they die. Further reading: Was this article helpful?
