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.

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.

Thank you so much for providing affordable
help to those of us navigating estate planning
mazes. The forms were all very easy to download,
even on our rather ancient computer, and the
accompanying explanations were in clear,
understandable English designed to explain,
with appropriate cautions to avoid problems.

I did this on a desktop using a scanned .pdf file. Simple, straight-forward, excellent instructions, easy, fast, and well documented for each step. From account creation to proof of recording: 4 hours... from the comfort of my home. I would highly recommend this service to anyone, including - and maybe especially - those who are looking for fast recording who aren't well versed in computers and on-line processes. Well done in all ways.
