My condolences for your loss.

Does the deed say the owners hold title to the property as "joint tenants"?

No it has Alfred K Watkins and Sadie M Watkins his wife but was never married
Real Estate Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

So, there is no right of survivorship? They owned the property as tenants in common?
