Hello... Sarah Summons was kind enough to answer my question I posted yesterday. I just had one quick question or clarification about her response. I did a Quitclaim Deed with my Mom to have me added to the deed along with her as we are refinancing our home. The Quitclaim we did was done on a standard form used in CT - New Haven County. Not sure if that form implies joint tenants with the right of survivorship or tenants in common. If you could please clarify this for me, I would greatly appreciate your expertise. Please advise and thank you for your help !!!

Look at the Quit claim deed to see how your mother conveyed the property to you and herself.
If your intention was to convey the property as joint tenants with rights of survivorship, the deed must state so, otherwise you own the property as tenants in common.
