In New Jersey USA, if a married couple acquires real estate, is it by default "tenants in common" or "joint tenants" (if not expressly stated on the deed)?
it is by default whatever is listed on the granting deed: tenants in common or joint with rights of survivorship.
Or, ... er... quitclaim, or warranty/non-warranty...or...
i.e. whatever is on the granting deed is the "default."
