Idaho Affidavit of Successor

Idaho's statutes allow three primary methods for co-ownership of real estate: tenancy in common, joint tenancy, and community property. See Idaho Code Section 55-104.

Holding title as tenants in common means that each owner has title rights to a separate portion of the property. The owner may sell or otherwise convey the share independently from the others, and it may be included in his/her will.

Joint tenancy and community property, on the other hand, include the right of survivorship, meaning that when one owner dies, his/her share of the property is distributed amongst the survivors. Note that community property is only available to married couples and often requires a recorded community property agreement for full effect.

To formalize the transfer, remaining owners may use an affidavit of survivorship. By executing and recording this document, along with an official copy of the deceased owner's death certificate, the property and taxation records are updated to show the new status. This helps to maintain a clear chain of title (ownership history), which is important for future transfers of the property.

Each situation is unique, so seek legal advice for complex situations or with specific questions.

Gary G. said: Ordered the forms I needed for my state and county and everything worked out perfectly. All the forms came with examples (filled in) and very detailed instructions for each block that required an entry. I was able to fill everything out on my computer and save the files for future use, if required. Deeds provides an excellent product. I highly recommend their products and will use their services again.

Sherilynne P. said: I am delighted with the form. I just had to go through so much time and expense in order to use it. First, from your site I downloaded Adobe Acrobat. It totally compromised my computer. I had to get a computer expert to walk me through deleting adobe, and put a substitute on in order to use the form. That was an expense of $60.00. Then after that I still had a hard time getting the program to work, as the substitute program would not accept my e-mail address and I finally had to get someone on line to help me access that. I found it was a $$30.00 charge for the substitute. After fighting these lovely roadblocks, I was finally able to fill in the only form I needed and print it off. Took me two days to accomplish that. Why on earth do you offer adobe when it can compromise a computer so badly? Dealing with my husbands death and then having to deal with this, just one of many deterrents, well let's put it this way, it did not make my two days.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear of your experience. Our documents are Adobe PDFs because PDF is the standard for digital documents, most computers have Adobe Reader installed, and it (Adobe Reader) is free.

Robert D. said: These forms made it so easy to update the property deed and the instructions and sample filled out form were most helpful. You might want to add some brief information on when or why to use the Acknowledgment in Individual Capacity notary form. In my case the notary was required to use it but also filled in the brief notarize section on the Affidavit as well. She said the one on the Affidavit had some value because it showed she had witnessed the my signature. But this was only after I suggested both be filled in as she initially thought to just strike through it and just use the Acknowledgment in Individual Capacity form.
