Real Property

 

Joint Tenancy - Holding title in joint tenancy means that two or more persons own an undivided interest in the whole.  Each joint tenant has equal ownership of the property with an undivided right to keep or dispose of the property.  Joint tenancy creates a right of survivorship between the joint tenants.  A joint tenant may break the joint tenancy by conveying his/her interest to himself or herself.  Upon severing a joint tenancy, the person severing the joint tenancy becomes a co-tenant with the other owners who may, or may not, elect to remain as joint tenants with the co-tenant.  Any co-owner’s interest may be sold on execution sale to satisfy a debt due to his/her creditor wherein the creditor becomes a tenant in common.  One of the advantages of owning real property as joint tenants is that it avoids probate with the property going to the other joint tenants. 

 

Tenants in Common - Holding title in joint tenancy means that two or more persons own an undivided interest in the whole.  Each joint tenant has equal ownership of the property with an undivided right to keep or dispose of the property.  Joint tenancy creates a right of survivorship between the joint tenants.  A joint tenant may break the joint tenancy by conveying his/her interest to himself or herself.  Upon severing a joint tenancy, the person severing the joint tenancy becomes a co-tenant with the other owners who may, or may not, elect to remain as joint tenants with the co-tenant.  Any co-owner’s interest may be sold on execution sale to satisfy a debt due to his/her creditor wherein the creditor becomes a tenant in common.  One of the advantages of owning real property as joint tenants is that it avoids probate with the property going to the other joint tenants. 

 

Judgment Recovery

 

There are thousands of unsatisfied judgments on the books waiting to be collected. Why can't the judgment winners collect these legally awarded debts? 

The debtor may have…

  • Changed residence to avoid payment 

  • Moved to another state where the judgment isn't valid

  • Attempted to hide assets

  • Transferred assets to another name or corporate entity

  • Changed legal name to avoid payment 

 

While the courts attempt to see justice served by awarding a money judgment to the winner of a civil case, they do absolutely nothing to enforce payment. Enforcement is left up to the judgment creditor and most people, after a few years, give up hope of ever collecting the money they are owed!

What you don't know can cost you money!

In California, judgments are good for ten years and can be renewed for an additional ten years. During the life of the judgment, it accumulates interest and increases in size.
