Property can be owned between more than one person as either joint tenants or as tenants in common.
With joint tenants the surviving co-owner will automatically receive the deceased’s share in the property regardless of any provisions in the will of the deceased. The deceased’s name is removed from the title and the surviving co-owner remains on the title. Spouses usually buy their home as joint tenants.
With tenants in common, parties can have equal or unequal ownership shares in the property. Unrelated parties or investors who want their own families to inherit their share in the property generally elect this form of ownership. The share in the property can vary from 1% to 99%
A tenants in common agreement is an agreement between co-owners property. It is advisable to enter into such an agreement when property is acquired by more than one party as tenants in common.
The agreement sets out the terms and conditions relating to the acquisition of the property, the use of the property, the ongoing obligations during the term of ownership and the rights of the parties if the property is sold. Addressing all terms and conditions upfront provides transparency to all the parties and gives certainty to the partnership.
The form of the agreement may vary depending on whether the property is purchased by the owners for occupation, for investment or when the property is only occupies by of the owners and not the other.

Spouses and domestic partners tend to transfer property between each other.
Before 1 July 2017, transfers between spouses or domestic partners were exempt from duty regardless of the type of property. Since 1 July 2017, only transfers of a principal place of residence (PPR) made for no consideration are exempt. There has been no change to the exemption for transfers resulting from the breakdown of a marriage or domestic relationship.
The principal place of residence requirement requires the property to be a residence property and at least one person in the relationship must live in the property as their principal place of residence (PPR) for a continuous period of at least 12 months commencing within 12 months of the transfer.
The no consideration requirement requires the transfer of land document to state “no consideration” as opposed to a monetary sum of consideration.
