Joint Tenancy

Q: My brother and I owned a rental property together as joint tenants and he recently passed away, but he wrote a will that left all of his assets to his son. Will I inherit his half of the property?

A: Yes you will. A will has no effect or power over property owned in joint tenancy, as the surviving joint tenant(s) will always inherit the interest of the deceased joint tenant, even if the deceased joint tenant had a will with different terms!
