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)

Great Job guys! I would not even have thought to look for this service. The county recorder's office and kiosks are all closed because of covid. I was directed to you because of a referral on the county site. I wish I had known you had forms available as well. I searched for a day to find the appropriate form.
