Use this instrument to formalize the acceptance of ownership rights conveyed when another joint tenant dies. Complete and sign the affidavit and submit it, along with a certified copy of the decedent's death certificate, to the recorder for the county where the real estate is located.

Holding title to real property in a survivorship tenancy is a convenient way to transfer ownership in land without probate. The Indiana Revised Code specifies the rules for co-ownership of real property in IC 32-17-2-1. This statute explains that two or more people who are not married to each other may own real estate as joint tenants with rights of survivorship as long as this intent is clearly stated in the text of the deed conveying title to them.

In order to gain full ownership, the surviving joint tenant need only submit a completed affidavit of surviving joint tenant, along with an official copy of the death certificate of the other owner, to the recorder for the county where the land is located.

This does not, however, remove the deceased's name from the deed. To accomplish that, the surviving tenant must execute and record a new deed from the original joint tenants to the remaining tenant only. After completing this final step, the public record and current deed will contain the most up-to-date information.

Deeds.com recorded documents for me without any issue. It's a good service and provides a lot of assistance on its web site. However, I asked for a printed receipt (i.e. an pdf copy of one), but after a staff provided me with an obvious answer, they simply ignored my follow up requests. I also asked a simple formatting question that they should have been able to answer; instead, they passed the buck and referred me to the recorder, which currently is a very time-consuming venture. They also have no telephone number for any issue. Generally, the service saves me the time and effort of physically recording a document, but when you think about $19.00 per recording seems like a steep price for the services rendered.
