Prior to her death, our mother executed a quit claim deeed

Customer Question

Prior to her death, our mother executed a quit claim deeed (Minnesota) transferring her home to myself and my two siblings. Th QC Deed is a joint Tenants type which I understand means if one passes the other two get that persons share. We agreed to execute a quit claim deed changing the vestment to Tennants in Common. As the only marrried grantor, the quit clain form requies my spouse to waive and release to the grantee all rights of dower,curtsey, homestead, community property, and all other rights, title and interest if any, in the property. My last will does leave all of my property to m spouse. Will my will priotect her inherited interest in this property?

The short answer is no. Placing property in joint tenancy may disinherit children or others since property held in joint tenancy passes to the survivor(s) regardless of what the deceased joint tenant's Will or Trust directs and regardless of whom the decedent's heirs are under law.
