Good morning and thanks so much for following up. Any assets that is owned as joint tenants with right of survivorship automatically vest in the surviving owner upon the death of the first owner outside the probate
process. Whether or not they have a will is not relevant because property owned as JT/ROS are not probate assets
and thus are not governed by the will, if there was one, or by the intestate
But, if the surviving owner later dies without a will, since that owner then owns 100% of the property, it will pass pursuant to the intestate succession laws applicable for the state in which the property is located. Under those intestate laws, if they have no remarried, the assets would be divided equally among the 3 of you (provided the decedent has no children by others).
