Forming two or more parcels of property under one title. Normally, the smaller parcel (s) are joined to the title of the larger parcel. The merger of title often occurs in an estate settlement where adjoining parcels of property are merged under one title. For example, Jack Abbot is the heir to the adjacent property estate of his father, Brian. Upon Brian's death, a merger of title occurs whereby Jack's property, being the smaller of the two parcels, is joined with his father's property to form one common property.
