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.
