If you're joint tenants then the property automatically passes to the surviving tenants so you can't will it to anyone, you have to be tenants in common to do that as far as I understand it. I'm surprised the people making the will didn't point this out to you.Hello, Thank you for your reply. We have had a hectic few months here and sorry to come back to this point on which you have already quoted. In your second paragraph you state that had we been Tenants in Common we would have been able to bequeath our share of the property to 'others' - but we have done that (each) and yet we are Joint Tenants ? Have we done something which will not be 'upheld' ???
