If the property was titled as tenants in common, that means that if there were two owners, each owns 50% of the property and that 50% would then transfer down through their estate to their heirs at law (if no will) or to the beneficiaries of any will as directed.
Only if it was titled as "joint tenants" would the surviving owner become the automatic sole owner upon one owner's death.
