Legal definition of tenants by the entirety
Commercial Real Estate Legal Terminology

tenants by the entirety

Is a type of tenancy available only for married couples. Husband and wife each own the undivided whole of the property, so upon the death of one of the spouses, his/her share goes directly to the surviving spouse.
A person that owns interest in a house as a tenant by the entirety may not freely dispose of that interest by will, or give away his/her interest in the property without the consent of the other tenant.
