In general, when one co-owner of real property held as joint tenants with right of survivorship dies, the living co-tenant gains the property rights of the deceased owner by function of law. As long as the remaining owner survives the deceased owner by at least 120 hours, the asset is not affected by the owner's will, and therefore does not pass through the estate and is not subject to probate distribution (112.582(5)).

Even though the transfer is supposed to be automatic, the Oregon statutes contain instructions for establishing death under the survivorship rules codified at ORS 112.570 to 112.590. Primarily, to prove that the deceased owner has actually died, the living co-owner should obtain "a certified or authenticated copy of a death certificate purporting to be issued by an official or agency of the place where the death is alleged to have occurred" (112.582(2)(a)).

Once the survivor has the death certificate, he/she should submit it for recording, along with an affidavit of surviving joint tenant, to the same office that recorded the deed granting the survivorship tenancy to the co-owners. An affidavit is a document containing statements made under oath, and is admissible as evidence. The affidavit is not explicitly required by Oregon law, but it helps to protect the survivor's interest in the real property by clarifying and formalizing the change. In addition, the affidavit includes details about the specific parcel(s) of land and recording information from the original deed.

Recording the affidavit of surviving joint tenant and official death certificate provides public notice of the change in ownership, which in turn maintains the chain of title (sequential list of owners). A clear chain of title, with no gaps, reversals, or other details out of order, makes it easier to acquire title insurance, which should simplify future sales or mortgages of the property.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

They have been fabulous not only for getting me the Title and Property info I needed quickly, but also for determining which Deed (of many) that I actually needed.

They are an outstanding resource for any real estate investor, property owner, Realtor, or attorney.

My sale is a land contract and it is complicated. We were thinking we'd have to get an attorney. Your site is very thorough and helpful. We will still have an attorney look over our final papers --and we are still waiting on my deed from the bank to finalize our input. Had several questions, but they seemed to be answered as I went along. The actual process of downloading and saving and having a link went very smoothly. Thank you.

Used this site and the forms a few times now and always a good experience. It's so nice to be able to download these forms to my computer and work on them there. So many others want you to do everything online, pain in my opinion. Thank you Deeds!

My mind is blown! For some reason, our veteran title companies wouldn't record our deed but luckily, the assessor's page recommended Deeds and other sites to e-record. It was so simple and so convenient!
