littleman,

If the joint tenant's in common are on agreement ie: one tenant wants to buy out the other tenant, then yes it could be amended and tile to the property could be transferred on both parties consent

If one party desires to sell the property they will need the other owners consent even to to list the property with a Realtor.

If one parties dies, then their share of the property would be under the care of control of their estate and hopefully they have a last will and testament that directs what is to be done with the property. With no Last Will in place the province steps in and I suspect most people would be unhappy with the result.

littelman,

Interesting Act to read

If one of the parties were to become absent, see the following

Absentees Act - R.S.O. 1990, Chapter A.3

http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/DBLaws/S...sh/90a03_e.htm

and read this Land Titles Act - R.S.O. 1990, CHAPTER L.5

Part VI section 60


http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/DBLaws/S...l05_e.htm#BK73
