Leaving Property in a Will



Leaving jointly owned property
Property can be jointly owned in one of 2 ways. The joint owners can own the property as “joint tenants” or as “tenants in common”. The type of ownership is has implications when leaving the property in a Will.
Property held as Joint Tenants
Where property is owned by joint tenants upon the death of one of the owners their share passes automatically to the other joint tenant or tenants. This is the case even if the owner has made a will purporting to leave his or her share of the property to another person.
Leaving Tenants in Common property
Where property is owned by tenants in common each co-owner is free to leave his or her share of the property to who ever they wish when they die. If they do not make a will their share in the property will pass to their relatives in accordance with the rules of intestacy.
Leaving foreign property in your Will
You may need to prepare a second will in the country where the property is situated to deal with that property. If you own overseas property you should take legal advice in the country where the property is situated.
Leaving a farm in your Will
If you own a farm and it is in your sole name by making a will you will normally be able to control what happens to the farm in the event that you die. If you own a farm jointly with another person or persons then your share of the farm may automatically pass to the surviving joint owner(s) regardless of what your will says. However, this will depend upon how the farm is held.
