California Affidavit Death of Joint Tenant Form

Select the county where the PROPERTY is located.
When real estate in California is owned by joint tenants and one of the owners dies, the remaining owner(s) can clear the title by recording an affidavit of Death of a Joint Tenant.

Joint tenancy is a way for two or more people to own property in equal shares so that when one of the joint tenants dies, the property can pass to the surviving joint tenant(s) without having to go through probate court.

The affidavit should be recorded in order to be binding on others. Take a certified copy of the death certificate of the deceased joint tenant and your affidavit to the recorder's office in the county where the real property is located.


California Affidavit Death of Joint Tenant forms must meet local and state statutory requirements for content and format. The most important county formatting requirements in California are the margin requirements. Failing to meet the recorder's document margin requirements can lead to the document being assessed with a non-compliant fee or being outright rejected for recording.
