Every circumstance is different and many states have unique laws regarding ownership of real property. The form of title you choose will have legal consequences. If you have questions, you should consult a qualified legal adviser. GovernmentAuction.com will generate your title based on the information provided, and you take on all responsibility for errors in the information submitted.
Taking title as a Sole Owner generally requires you to describe your personal legal status. For instance, you will need to state whether you are single, married, divorced, or unmarried (previously married and now legally divorced).
Note that should a married person choose to take title by Sole Ownership, you should indicate that you are married taking title “as his/her sole and separate property”. In most cases your spouse will be required to relinquish claim to the property.

For brief descriptions of each Co-Ownership title, please see below:
Property owned by a husband and wife during their marriage. The property is owned equally, and either spouse may dispose of one-half of the property by sale or by transfer.
Property owned by more than one person who may or may not be married to each other. Each co-owner holds an equal interest in the property, subject to the right of survivorship by the surviving joint tenants. When one joint tenant dies, title is passed to the remaining joint tenants, and rights to the property do not pass to the heirs or beneficiaries of the deceased owner.

As with Sole Ownership, taking title as a Legal Entity generally requires you to state the form of entity. The County may require you to submit documentary evidence showing the name of the entity and that the party executing documents for the entity has the authority to do so.
Some of the basic forms of a Legal Entity are:
A Corporation-a legal entity created under state law, with a separate legal status from its owners (or shareholders),
A Partnership-an association of persons who carry on business as co-owners under the Uniform Partnership Act.
A Limited Liability Corporation-a legal entity recognized under the state laws of many states, wherein owners have limited personal liability.
A Trust-a legal arrangement in which a person (a trustee) manages assets held for the benefit of individuals (the beneficiaries) specified in the trust agreement.
A Non Profit Corporation-an entity established to carry on activities for a specific charitable purposes, as registered under Federal Internal Revenue Code Section 501©(3).

Tenancy In Common
Property is owned by two or more individuals in undivided fractional interests. Each tenant in common owns a share of the property (the shares may be unequally distributed amongst the tenants in common). Each tenant in common may transfer his/her share of the property (for instance, by sale or will).
