Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating so all that means is that you can count on me to help today.The answer to your question is yes. It is possible to change a right of survivorship deed to be tenants-in-common. What you would need to do is file a quit claim deed which would reflect the change in interest. A quit claim deed can usually be found on something like rocketlawyer.com 4 right around twenty bucks. He would just make it clear on the deed that you are changing it from a right of survivorship to tenants in common. This way, when one of the parties die the property will go to their errors instead of being assumed by the other tenant.

Although I provided an initial answer, it’s important that you are 100% satisfied. If you feel I have done so, please rate me 5 stars and let me know if you have any follow up questions. As a side note, you can also click here in the future to request me individually.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
