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)

They respond fast, the process is simple, and it's obviously convenient. I'm not sure what else there is to say, other than it's I would say a reasonable fee to pay them to do it.

I got a blank, a sample and detailed instructions, I'm happy. If the recorder's office had a form as they like to see, with your name as they like to see, and the property name as they like to see, no one would ever pay a lawyer for this but a little time to look up the exact names and this package you're all set. I recommend this because, while it isn't difficult, making a mistake could be very bad so getting the details right for a particular county is well worth the cost.
