Minnesota Affidavit of Identity and Survivorship for Transfer on Death Deeds

Affidavit of Identity and Survivorship for Transfer on Death Deeds -- Minnesota Form 50.2.3

Minnesota's transfer on death deeds are governed by Minn. Stat. 507.071.

To complete the transfer of property rights after the grantor owner's death, the beneficiary must file an affidavit of identity and survivorship in the county where the land is located (subd.20). The affidavit must contain details about the deceased grantor owner, all beneficiaries, surviving or deceased, a legal description of the real estate, recording information from the transfer on death deed, and the address of the individual or entity who should receive future tax statements.

In addition to the affidavit, include an official copy of the grantor owner's death certificate and a clearance certificate from the Minnesota Department of Human Services. All three forms are required, and may be filed as a unified document with references on the affidavit to the death certificate and clearance certificate, but each may also be recorded individually. Note that the transfer is not completed until all three forms are filed for record.

The beneficiary may complete an online request from the DHS website: https://edocs.dhs.state.mn.us/lfserver/Public/DHS-5893-ENG to obtain the clearance certificate.

Individual counties may require additional information -- check with the local agency responsible for maintaining land records with any questions.

Richard E. said: Very easy. I copied each doc separately. Is there a way to copy the all docs at once into a folder? Thanks for being there. Rich

Reply from Staff: Thank you for the feedback Richard. Currently there is no way to download all of the documents at once but we'll definitely look into it. Have a great day!


Cherene K. said: The process was easy and reasonable. My only problem was that, when I filled out my form on the computer, the writing I did overlapped with the pre-written words on the form, so that I had to end up doing it by hand. I've used DEEDS before and have not had that problem.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback Cherene. We've emailed you for some followup regarding the issue you reported.
