Real property ownership and conveyance is governed by Title XXII of the Kentucky Revised Statutes.

Kentucky's standard version of joint tenancy resembles tenancy in common, in that "when a joint tenant dies, the joint tenant's part of the joint estate, real or personal, shall descend to the joint tenant's heirs, or pass by devise, or go to the joint tenant's personal representative, subject to debts, curtesy, dower, or distribution" (KRS 318.120). Basically, this means that each joint tenant owns an individual share of the whole property.

Section 318.130 provides the rules for survivorship tenancy, in which the joint tenants share undivided rights to the whole property. By stating the intent to vest ownership as joint tenants with right of survivorship, when one owner dies, that portion is distributed equally among the survivors. Joint tenancy with right of survivorship is common between spouses.

In order to formalize the "automatic" transfer that occurs from a deceased joint tenant, many co-owners choose to record an affidavit of surviving joint tenant, accompanied by a certified copy of the decedent's death certificate. Recording such an affidavit provides notice to the public and any future purchasers about the updated information. It also maintains a clear chain of title (ownership history), which should reduce some of the complexity from future sales or conveyances of the real property.

Even though executing and recording an affidavit of surviving joint tenant clears the title, the deceased owner's name remains on the deed. The only way to remove that name is by executing and recording a new deed, preferably including a copy of the recorded affidavit.

The forms worked well for entering information. I have finished without much trouble. Since the forms are Adobe PDF files you need the free app to use them but you can't edit unless you have the paid Adobe program. And, it was a reasonable price.

The form I needed was correct and paginated as required. It was accepted w/o penalties. I was not happy about the information which I found way too scant. One sample form does not cover enough possibilities, more would be helpful. The instruction page is a bit better but sometimes it is not clear enough - sometimes it is not clear what the numbered items in the form correspond to. There is no guidance about the process and it would take very little to provide it. Example about "description", say where to find. There is a bunch of "free forms" attached but no guide on which are needed and when. Example: at the counter I was given a paper "conveyance" form and asked to fill it - I did not know it was needed and what it did and so I had not d

From Pennsylvania here. Documents are great and easy to fill out however you are lacking a couple of things. You only provide the option for a Grant Deed when you purchase by your county which is Mercer County for me. Why not give the ability to get a Warranty Deed that better protects the Grantee?
Also, being from Pennsylvania and in a county that mined Buituminous Coal we are required to include the Coal Severance Notice and Bituminous Mine Subsidence and Land Conservation Act Notice. You can check the box on your Deed form that they are required and attached but you do not provide the verbiage or form for this. You state that you know what each county requires and include everything required but you do not include these two required Notices. This has been a requirement for years and the wording never changes. I had to look for these Notices and hand type this information and include it on another seperate page after the Notary section on the Deed. The Grantor has to sign the Coal Severance Notice and be witnessed by a Notary so I had to add another place for the Notary and will have to pay twice for witnessed signatures when it could have been included in your document. My Deed from 2003 was done that way and then the Notary statement after that so it was only one notarized witness of signature.
