Multiple Party Accounts: Ownership of Amounts on Deposit - Study L-1064
Recent case law interprets the Multiple Party Accounts Law to enable a party
to an account to obtain ownership of amounts on deposit without liability to the other parties by
withdrawal of funds from the account. The Commission recommends corrective legislation to make clear
that ownership of amounts withdrawn from a joint account is based on net contributions to the account.
Legislation to implement the Commission's recommendation is pending as AB 69 (Harman) in the 2005-06
