Tenancy In Common

It is the ownership of the personal or real property held by two or more people, not neccesarily spouses or family members, and may be having unequal shares in terms of the size of the property. Still, all the different owners have equal rights to the property and have right to sell, purchase orm develope their share of ownership without the consent of other holders. But there is no right to survivorship and thus the property of the deceased owner goes to his/her heir.
