Estate By Entirety Legal Meaning and Definition

Here is a simplified definition of the legal term Estate By Entirety.

Estate by Entirety (noun)

An "Estate by Entirety" is a type of legal ownership where a married couple equally own property as a single entity. This means that even if one of them passes away, the other person will still fully own the entire property. It's like the property is owned by the married couple, and not separately by each person. It's a way to protect the property from being taken away without both owners agreeing to it.
