My mother and father (married) purchased a home in NY. The deed does not specifically said 'husband and wife'. Is the default ownership tenants in common or tenants by the entirety?My father died first without a will and he had two out of wedlock children and three children of the marriage. My mother assumed the house transfered to her. She died a year later without a will. The children of the marriage want to sell the house but are being told because the deed is silent the default is tenants in common and the out of wedlock children own 50% and have to agree to the sale.
