Are there any recurring fees involved?

No. Nothing to cancel, no memberships, no recurring fees.

Minnesota allows two or more people to share ownership of real estate as joint tenants. Unlike tenants in common, who each own individual portions of the property, joint tenants share equal parts of the undivided whole property. As a result, if one joint tenant dies, his/her rights are distributed evenly amongst the surviving joint tenants. Note that joint tenancy property passes outside of probate, so it does not become part of the decedent's estate.

To complete the transfer of ownership rights, the surviving joint tenant or tenants should execute an affidavit of identity and survivorship, based on Minnesota Form 50.2.2. The affidavit references the recorded deed where the joint tenants gained the property rights, and also requires a certified copy of the decedent's death certificate. Record the affidavit and its supporting documents in the office responsible for maintaining property records for the county where the land is located.

After recording the affidavit, the deceased joint tenant no longer holds any property rights, but his/her name will still appear as an owner in the records. To actually remove that name, the remaining joint tenant(s) should execute a new deed listing all original joint tenants as grantors, but identifying the deceased individual and including a certified copy of the death certificate. Name only the surviving tenants as grantees. After filing the new deed, the property records should only show the remaining owners.

A refreshingly easy service to use. They offer auxiliary forms as a courtesy. Theres no "gotcha" capitalism. You pay the reasonable fee and the needed forms are accessible instantly to download. I've used it twice so far and it worked perfectly!

This does the job but we are not able to save this in our account and if you don't pay for Adobe and only have Adobe reader, I cannot save any information on the form online in my account. I do understand why they do this because they would lose money. A huge issue is that when I got to the end of the document and was adding an Exhibit A, as I typed, the page kept jumping back up the to top and I couldn't see what I was typing. I had to type a little then scroll back down and when I would type more, it would jump up again. This was a real problem.

This was easy to use and only contained one glaring error-where to send the completed form to finish the process. I’ve completed the form, does this mean I get the amended deed sent to me? I think not.
