In Maryland there are four basic ways to hold title to a property. This may also be referred to as ways to hold tenancy.
First of all, there is “fee simple”. This can be thought of the most basic and strong way to hold property. An example of fee simple is when you buy a home by yourself. You take the title in “fee simple” and have rights to use this property as you see fit (subject to county, state, or federal regulation) and the right to convey this property. This is the most straightforward and strongest form of tenancy.
