(1) If the property qualifies as a homestead for a joint tenant who is the husband or wife of the other joint tenant or one of the other joint tenants, then, upon the death of either spouse, the homestead shall continue in effect on the interest in such property of the surviving spouse. If the property qualifies as a homestead for a joint tenant who is the parent of one or more of the other joint tenants who are minors, then, upon the death of such parent leaving no spouse surviving, the homestead shall continue in effect on the interest in such property of the surviving minor children.

(2) If the property qualifies as a homestead for a joint tenant who is not related to any other joint tenant as husband or wife or parent and minor child, then, upon the death of such joint tenant, his homestead shall cease and terminate, and the property shall be held by the surviving tenants free of any homestead interest of such decedent, his spouse, or his minor children.
