OPINION AND ORDER
CHARLES R. NORGLE, SR., District Judge:
Before the court is the motion of The Travelers Indemnity Company ("Travelers") for a turnover order. For the following reasons, the motion is granted.
This is a supplementary proceeding which derives from a suit based on an indemnity agreement executed by Joel Engel ("Engel"). Travelers obtained a judgment against Engel as indemnitor under the agreement in the amount of $ 84,536.27. Travelers perfected its judgment lien by recording it with the Cook County Recorder of Deeds and now seeks to enforce the judgment by execution on property owned by Engel located at 573 Grove Street, Glencoe, Illinois 60622.
Prior to March 1991, legal title to the property was held by Harris Bank Glencoe-Northbrook N.A. ("Harris"), as land trustee. Engel and his wife Beth Engel owned the beneficial interest in the land trust jointly. On March 4, 1991, Harris executed a trustee's deed purporting to transfer title to Engel and his wife as tenants by the entirety. However, the deed does not identify Joel and Beth Engel as husband and wife.
Travelers contends that because the deed does not identify the Engels as husband and wife, it did not create a tenancy by the entirety. Therefore, according to Travelers, the property is subject to execution and sale. Engel contends that the deed did create a tenancy by the entirety and, therefore, the property is exempt from execution pursuant to 735 ILCS 5/12-112.
The Illinois Joint Tenancy Act, 765 ILCS 1005/1c, delineates the statutory requirements for a tenancy by the entirety. The statute states:
Whenever a devise, conveyance, assignment, or other transfer of homestead property maintained or intended for maintenance as a homestead by both husband and wife together during coverture shall be made and the instrument of devise, conveyance, assignment or transfer expressly declares that the devise or conveyance is made to persons, named and expressly identified in that instrument as husband and wife, not as joint tenants or tenants in common but as tenants by the entirety, the estate created shall be deemed to be in tenancy by the entirety.
