Ways To Hold Title

  1. "Persons" includes a natural person as well as validly formed corporation, limited partnership, limited liability company or general partnership. Trust property is vested in the trustee.
  2. Transfers by spouses/domestic partners may require a quitclaim deed from the other spouse/partner for title insurance purposes.
  3. If co-owners are spouses/domestic partners, property may be subject to legal presumption of "community property" requiring consent of both spouses/partners to convey or encumber title notwithstanding vesting as "joint tenancy".
