Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Did you add son as a "joint tenant with right of survivorship" on the deed?
Ok, then if it says either/or, that means that you are joint tenants.. So if either of you passes, the survivor becomes the instant owner of the entire property without any further action..
So that asset wouldn't have to go through probate and would go directly to son if you passed first.
