If a property is owned between husband and wife as tenants

Resolved Question:

If a property is owned between husband and wife as tenants in common and one of them dies does the ownership revert to surviver or does the deceased ownership form part of their will?

The deceased person's share goes to their estate to pass under their Will, if one has been made. It doesn't pass on to the surviving spouse as it is not a joint tenancy but a tenancy in common.
