                              2. Nature
                                1. Joint Tenancy ( JT)
                                  1. The four Unities: AG Securities v Vaughan
                                    1. Possession
                                      1. Interest

                                          2. Right of survivorship ( Jus accrescendi)
                                            1. When one JT dies - his/her interest in land passes to surviving Jts
                                              1. Does not pass under his will or intestacy
                                              2. Right of survivorship acts IMMEDIATELY on death
                                                1. whereas a will is operative on death so survivorship takes effects first ( RE CAINES deceased)
                                                2. Ultimate suvivor of all the joint tenants will eventually be the sole owner of the land
                                              3. Tenancy in Common (TIC)
                                                1. The Unities
                                                  1. Only unity possession is essential
                                                    1. each co-owner has a distinct "undivided share in the land"
                                                      1. Tenants have quite separate interests, although while the tenancy lasts no-one can say which od them owns any particular part of the land - hence share bing undivided
                                                      2. No right of survivorship
                                                        1. Deceased's share will pass under his/her will or the rules of intestacy
                                                    2. The legal title (Trustees)
                                                      1. Post 1925
                                                        1. LPA 1925 abolished legal TIC : legal title must now ALWAYS be held by way of a JT s1(6) LPA 1925
                                                          1. No severance of legal JT so as to create a TIC : s36(2) LPA 1925
                                                            1. Limiting legal title to a JT ensures that the right of survivorship operates
                                                              1. S34(2) Trustee Act 1924 : max 4 legal owners
                                                              2. Pre 1925
                                                                1. JT caused few problem : Number of legal owners would just decreases as owner died
                                                                  1. But TIC at law may have required a purchaser to investigate numerous tittles causing conveyancing difficulties
                                                                2. The equitable Interest ( Beneficiaries )
                                                                  1. Deal with the actual ownership if land - trustees have a role of managing the property
                                                                    1. The four Unities
                                                                      1. For a JT to exist L 4U must be present
                                                                        1. If one or more of the unities are missing, the equitable interest CANT be held as a JT
                                                                          1. Express declaration
                                                                            1. Event where all 4U are present: its still possible for the equitable interest to be held Either as a JT or a TIC
                                                                        Show full summary Hide full summary
