Hi I recently created an affidavit through your website. My question is my property is owned by 3 people, my father who is now deceased, my mother and myself. The online form created an affidavit of survivorship but only for myself but my mother is also an owner. Can I just file the affidavit for myself or do I need to create one for my mother as well?
Thank you for using DeedClaim.com. First, we are not a law firm and cannot give legal advice. More on that below. That said, the purpose of a Survivorship Affidavit is to put something on record to show that the joint owner is deceased. It is not a transfer. It is just a means of putting evidence in the land records that one of the co-owners has passed away. Because the purpose is only to put third parties on notice, and because the Survivorship Affidavit is not a transfer, it can be signed by only one of the surviving owners. That is how the software was designed.
