In New Mexico real estate law, will the granting language in

In New Mexico real estate law, will the granting language in a deed to "A & B, Husband and Wife, as Joint Tenants" but WITHOUT the follow on language "with rights of survivorship" give a surviving spouse survivorship rights without more so that the surviving spouse automatically by this form of ownership owns the whole property -- or is it the equivalent of tenancy in common?

I have a file that came up. I am on the buyers side. Cash

For Attyadvisor. I have a file that came up. I am on the buyers side. Cash deal no lender. Buyers are husband and wife, buying for their son. They want the deed to be in their son's name but if anything were to happen to him they want the property to revert back to them (as opposed to it going to his wife/kids).My initial thoughts were to have all 3 names (mother, father, and son) on deed and for them to take title as joint tenants so that it will revert to the parents if anything were to happen to the son.The buyers also have a trust and wanted the property to be in the trust. But that will not be possible if they want the sons name on the deed/title.Any thoughts or suggestions here? Maybe they should keep him off title then? But then they're responsible for property taxes and would have to have an agreement that son pays property taxes.I'm kind of thinking out loud here. Please let me know what your thoughts are.P.S. Yes I have found Loren to be great as well. He is often online when I'm awake early in the morning. If sending a question early I don't want to bother you and expect a response at 6am my time 4am your time! :) Lol

My husband had a joint tenancy of land with his father. His name has been removed without notice or him signing anything. We realize someone else's name may be added and then the agreement is changed from joint tenancy to a different agreement. But thus far he has lost all rights to that land. Is this legal?

We financed the sale of a mobile home sold through an escrow

We financed the sale of a mobile home sold through an escrow company. My husband is the legal owner on the title. The home we believe is PERSONAL property as it is in a mobile home park. The two registered owners who held the home in joint tenancy have both passed away. The family has stopped making payments as of Dec. and have indicated they are walking away. The home is vacant and has been for some time. One beneficiary has been cooperative and has agreed to sign off on the title and other documents required to get title back. The other beneficiary is not cooperating- for no particular reason. How do we reposess? Home is located in San Bernardino Co., CA.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: California. And this is not real estate. The mobile home is personal property.JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: What do you mean?JA: What confuses you?Customer: I believe the note was recorded. We have not filed anything after the default. The only paperwork that may have been filed was a TAX CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE, but the paralegal won't release it to us!JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have the paperwork signed by one beneficiary, but not the other who isn't cooperating.
