What is a survivorship deed?

Answer

A survivorship deed is a legal document that conveys a real estate title into the names of two or more joint tenants.

Upon the death of one of the tenants, the title for the property will automatically be transferred to the other party or parties on the deed. This type of deed is commonly employed when, for example, a couple purchases property together. If one partner dies, ownership of the property will automatically be transferred to the survivor. If the relationship changes before either of the partners die, as in the case of divorce, the deed can be redrawn, but will require the consent of both parties.
