Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I will do whatever I can to answer your question.
No, absent a specific statement in the grant that the grantees are taking title as joint tenants, it is tenants in common.
I hope this is helpful. If you have more follow up questions please let me know. It is never a problem.
Thank you.
