Montana Affidavit of Deceased Joint Tenant

Montana Affidavit of Deceased Joint Tenant Information

Montana's Affidavit of Deceased Joint Tenant

The Montana Affidavit of Deceased Joint Tenant form is appropriate for use by a surviving joint tenant, as identified on a recorded real property deed.

Montana Code Annotated defines how joint tenancy is created at Section 70-20-105 and the associated right of survivorship at 70-20-310.

Under 72-16-503, to formally initiate the process of perfecting the title, the surviving owner should complete and record an affidavit containing those matters required by 7-4-2613(1)(c). Among other details, this document should identify the parties, the property, and the recording information. Also include an official copy of the deceased owner's death certificate.

Submit the affidavit and any other necessary paperwork to the clerk and recorder for each county in which the real property or any part of the property is located.

This is an important step because it contributes to a clear chain of title (ownership history), which should, in turn, make future sales of the property less complex. It also serves as public notice of the change in the property's status.

Each case is unique, however, so contact an attorney for complex situations or with specific questions.

Jessi S. said: Delivery of documents was instantaneous once payment is received. Thank you for that. For future clarification to potential users, Deeds.com may want to categorize the type of easement documents that are available. I was needing a 'utility easement' form and received an 'ingress/egress' form. Had I known it was an ingress/egress document, I would not have made the purchase. Outside of this issue, this site is very helpful for the average layperson to hold guardianship over personal interests.

Tiffany Dawn J. said: Would be nice to have a better description on how to complete the forms if it is separated couple and one is signing the deed over to the other. I am still unsure how it should be worded. Disappointed that the guide didn't have better explanations.
