2 friends purchased a holiday home in fee simple in ireland.

Customer Question

2 friends purchased a holiday home in fee simple in ireland. they both purchased and co-own the property and they hold it in fee simple. one gave 60% the other gave 40%
my questions are
in what manner did they co-own the property immediately after the purchase?
if they held the land as joint tenants at the outset despite any advice given on that point, in what manner would they co-own the property now?

1. Dear *****, once the property was purchased here, the two "friends" would own the property as tenants in common 60:40 in proportion to their contributions to the purchase price. There would not be a joint tenancy as there were unequal contributions to the purchase price and anyway, the law leans against joint tenancies and only creates them where absolutely necessary. In relation to your hypothetical question, if they owned it as joint tenants, then they would each own the whole interest in the property jointly. There would be no percentages.

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!
