Vesting Information

We need your vesting information to process your deed.  The correct vesting information will avoid unnecessary probate expenses if your Estate goes to court.

Below are common ways to take title to real property.  This is provided for informational purposes only and each state may vary.

There are significant tax and legal consequences on how you hold title. We strongly
suggest contacting an attorney and/or CPA for specific advice on how you should actually vest your title.

To vest deed the following information must be submitted:

     -Full name/names you want on deed

     -Address (Where you will receive recorded deed and future tax bills)

     -Your phone number and email, incase we need to contact you.

Choose one of the following for vesting deed:


A single man/woman
A man or woman who is not married.
Example: John Doe, a single man.

An unmarried man/woman
A man or woman, who having been married, is legally divorced.
Example: John Doe, an unmarried man.

A widower (man)/A widow (woman)

Example: Jane Doe, a widow.

A married man/woman as his/her sole and separate property
When a married man or woman wishes to acquire title as their sole and separate
property, the spouse must consent and relinquish all right, title and interest in the property by deed or other written agreement.
Example: John Doe, a married man, as his sole and separate property.


Community Property
Property acquired by husband and wife, or either during marriage, other than by gift,
bequest, devise, descent or as the separate property of either is presumed community property.
Example: John Doe and Mary Doe, husband and wife, as community property.

Joint Tenancy
Joint and equal interests in land owned by two or more individuals created under a
single instrument with right of survivorship. Parties do not have to be married or related to use this option.
Example: John Doe and Mary Doe, husband and wife, as joint tenants with right of survivorship.

Tenancy in Common
Under tenancy in common, the co-owners own undivided interests; but unlike joint
tenancy, these interests need not be equal in quantity and may arise at different times.  There is no right of survivorship; each tenant owns an interest, which on his or her death vests in his or her heirs or devisee.
Example: John Doe, a single man, as to an undivided 3/4ths interest, and George Smith, a single man as to an undivided 1/4th interest, as tenants in common.

Title to real property may be held in trust. The trustee of the trust holds title
pursuant to the terms of the trust for the benefit of the trustor/beneficiary.
Example: John Doe as trustee for The Doe Family Trust, dated November 12, 2015 (date trust was created).

A corporation/company (Name of entity and state)
