Maryland Tenants by the Entirety Property Deed and Same Sex Couples

Deed_Property_Title_Company_Attorney_MarylandThe following question has recently arisen both with clients and in public discussions. Is special deed drafting language necessary to record a property deed as tenants by the entirety (aka Tenancy by the Entireties or Tenants by the Entireties) if the owners are married and of the same sex? Under Maryland law the answer is simple: No. Tenants by the Entirety is a concurrent estate in real property held by a wife and wife, husband and husband or wife and husband, whereby each owns an undivided whole of the property, coupled with the right of survivorship, so that upon the death of one, the survivor is entitled to the decedent’s share.
