Chapter 2. Joint or Several Obligations - California Civil Code Section 1431

1431.  Joint Liability
   An obligation imposed upon several persons, or a right created in
favor of several persons, is presumed to be joint, and not several,
except as provided in Section 1431.2, and except in the special cases
mentioned in the title on the interpretation of contracts. This
presumption, in the case of a right, can be overcome only by express
words to the contrary.
