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.

Comments for Merger Of Title

David Stark David Stark said:

A merger of estates. The grantor put a restriction on a conveyance. He is the holder of a license controlling the conveyance. He conveyed 1/3 rd to himself in the conveyance as tenants in common. Does the merger of title occur in the grantor or the TIC grantee?
