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.

They respond fast, the process is simple, and it's obviously convenient. I'm not sure what else there is to say, other than it's I would say a reasonable fee to pay them to do it.

Process is easy but system would not accept 3 different credit cards on first day. No phone number to call. Sent message and response was all 3 cards must have been declined. However, next day one of those cards went through with no problem.

The deed is presently at the auditors office and will be recorded after approval from zoning board. As far as I know, everything is going along well. A self addressed envelope was left at recorder's office for return after recording is complete.

Excellent Service
I was looking for a copy of deeds on a few properties. Researched online and ended up at Deeds.com. I signed up for a new account, entered the pertinent information, paid a nominal fee and received all deeds within 40 minutes. Seamless and very impressed!

I bought a Quitclaim Deed package for Fayette County, Kentucky, to transfer my house into a Living Trust that I had set up previously. Creating my Quitclaim Deed was pretty straightforward, using the form, the instructions, and the sample Quitclaim Deed. I signed my Quitclaim Deed at a nearby Notary Public, then took it to the Fayette County Clerk's office to be recorded. The clerk there asked me to make two small changes to the Quitclaim Deed, which she let me do in pen on the spot:
* In the signature block for the receiver of the property, filled in "Capacity" as "Grantee as Trustee ______________________________ Living Trust".
* In the notary's section, changed "were acknowledged before me" to "were acknowledged and sworn to before me".

Customer service was poor. I felt like I had to debate the representative to provide guidance and assistance. They acted as though I knew the process, the documents involved, etc. At the same time, they asked me to confirm which documents or at least pages needed to be filed. I was leaning of Deeds.com for their expertise.
