The beneficiaries record the Notice of Death Affidavit (in the registry of deeds in the county where the real property is located) (to confirm title following the death of the transferor.)
The Notice of Death Affidavit must contain:
1. (The name and address, if known, of each beneficiary taking under the transfer on death deed)
2. (The street address of the property)
3. (The date of the transfer on death deed)
4. (The book and page number at which the transfer on death deed was recorded prior to the transferor's death)
5. (The name of the deceased transferor)
6. (The date and place of death)
7. (The name and address to which all future tax bills should be mailed)
8. (The affidavit must be notarized.) (ME revised statute 6-414)

I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.
