Severance of tenancy by the entireties by written instrument. Clarifies that a husband and wife may own real or personal property as tenants by the entirety for as long as they are married. The bill provides that, in order to sever a tenancy by the entireties by written instrument, the instrument must be a deed that is signed by both spouses as grantors of the property.
