No “De Facto” Tenancy by Entireties

Surviving husband had no rights to any properties conveyed by his deceased wife one month before her death despite his claims of “sweat equity” in maintaining and improving the properties during their marriage because there is no “de facto” tenancy by the entireties.  The properties were not included in the husband’s intestate share of the estate because they were not in the name of the decedent at her death, although they would have been part of the husband’s elective share of the estate if the husband had exercised his right of election.  In re: Estate of Isabel Carrasquillo Rivera, 2018 PA Super 225 (8/8/2018).
