Here in Cali, state law makes its clear that only 'husband and wife' can own their real estate as 'Community Property'.
Community Property is a special type of ownership, with rights of survival, between specifically, husband and wife. In some states, the terms
"Entirety" or simply "Joint tenants" is used to describe property held jointly by husband and wife.
What about the 17 states that now recognize gay marriage? Do they recognize Community/Entirety/Joint property the way husband and wife do in virtually
As far as the deed is concerned, in such cases like California where gay marriage is now as of June 28, 2013 legally recognized - thru Court - what in
the world will California's DRE/Real Estate Commission do about gay spouses wanting to have their entitlement to Community Property with right of
survivorship (as opposed to tenants in common, or having to put joint tenants in the deed as if they are not officially married or something)?
Just wonderin, cause my neighbors whose garden I was workin on these lovely day, recently tied the knot here in Cali and asked me since they know of
my JD background (I graduated NYU law school, but would rather be dead than work in the current legal atmosphere of whats left of Amerika!)
