Joint tenants

Two or more persons who hold title to real estate jointly with equal rights to share in its enjoyment during their respective lives with the provision that, upon the death of a joint tenant, his share in the property passes to the surviving tenants, and so on, until the full title is vested in the last survivor. A joint tenant can not legally sell or encumber his interest without the consent or joinder of all of the other joint tenants.
