Married couples in Indiana may hold title to real estate as tenants by the entireties. This means that when one spouse dies, the other gains full ownership of the property by function of law, and without the need for probate. Use this instrument to formalize the acceptance of ownership rights conveyed when a spouse 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.

In order to gain full ownership, the husband or wife submits a completed affidavit of surviving spouse, along with an official copy of the death certificate of the deceased spouse, 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 survivor must execute and record a new deed from the married couple to the remaining spouse only. After completing this final step, the public record and current deed will contain the most up-to-date information.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

You're service saved the day! I had gone to several lawyers and title companies who all said, at a Minimum, preparing a deed costs $1000...
Through your service and some work reading about the requirements as well as calling my county clerks office, I was able to complete the deed and it read accepted and recorded today!
Thanks so much.

The Mineral Deed transfer form was pretty good. Could have used more info in the guide about where to find legal property descriptions and source of title. Also more space on the pdf for entering return addresses - there was room for only one; I needed three. I will be sending the form to the County Courthouse soon. I hope it works.

I needed a copy of a deed for a client and wanted to be sure I had the most recent one. I used Deeds.com and had it along with detailed property information within minutes at a very reasonable price. I am very pleased.

I was extremely pleased with this experience, which literally took a minimum amount of time. One recommendation: make certain that when documents are uploaded that they have been received in the appropriate file. The lack of clarity caused me to upload twice or three times. Thank you.
