When land is co-owned in ajoint tenancy (or, formerly, in a TenancyByEntireties), if one of the co-owners dies, his interest in the land simply evaporates. No special action is needed to transfer the interest of the deceased to the other co-owners, as a joint tenant has no separate interest to transfer.
