Kansas Transfer on Death Affidavit

Using a Kansas Affidavit of Death to Complete a Transfer on Death

In Kansas, the county assessor's office initiates the transfer of real property rights under a transfer on death deed. There are several steps to take, however, before that can happen.

When the property owner dies, an individual with personal knowledge of the intended transfer, whether the named beneficiary or someone else, makes the sworn statements contained within an affidavit of death. The affidavit, along with an official copy of the deceased owner's death certificate, is filed for record with the register of deeds for the county where the land is located.

The register of deeds then forwards the details to the county assessor's office, where they match the information on the affidavit with the deed records. After the assessor's office verifies the details, they begin the process to transfer the previous owner's rights to the beneficiary.
