Pawlowski, Mark and Brown, James (2011) Joint tenancies and English commorientes: a question of survivorship or severance? Property Law Review, 1 (2). pp. 122-134. ISSN 1838-3858Full text not available from this repository.
The aim of this article is to provide a critical appraisal of the English law in relation to the doctrine of commorientes with particular reference to its implications in respect of property held on a joint tenancy. The article suggests a measure of reform which would produce a fairer dsitribution of joint property in circusmtances where all joint tenants have died in a common disaster and it cannot be ascertained which joint tenant died first.
