My sister and i have property together, we were on the deed

Customer Question

Hi there,
My sister and i have property together, we were on the deed as tenants in common. She owned 50% and I owned 50%
A few years ago we added her husband to the deed. The two of them own 50% and I own 50%. The wanted to be joint tenants to each other and i stayed as tenant in common.
The deed reads my sister 50% joint tenant, brother-in -law 50% joint tenant and me as 50% tenant in common. Is this correct? or did they make a mistake in the wording on the deed?

That doesn't make sense.

It should say sister and brother-in-law 25% each as joint tenants and you on title as 50% tenant- in- common.
