The 3 Different Ways To Hold a Title in Ontario

Tenancy In Common

You own a specified share of the home and may be able to transfer or sell that share to others. Upon death, the share of the home will pass to the tenant in common’s heirs.

Joint Tenancy

You co-own 100% of the home with the other people on title and no one person owns a specific share of the home. For example, spouses may purchase a home together as joint tenants because, in the event that one of the spouses passes away, 100% of the ownership of the home then automatically belongs to the surviving spouse.   

Sole Owner

Ownership by an individual or entity legally capable of holding the title. The most common sole ownership is held by single men and women.
