Tenants in Common vs Joint TenancyA friend and I purchased a house six years ago and the mortgage contract sets up our legal relationship as tenants in common- 50 50 responsibility etc. I put in all of the down payment.( lets not even discuss what the house is valued at now) I believe we should actually be joint tenants, where each of us owns a percentage, based on the substantial downpayment I made and that I put in more toward the monthly bills. What do I have to do to buy her out of the 50 50 contract and refile the papers of ownership?ThanksJudtkeJune 22 2012 - Paradise00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
