Wyoming Affidavit of Survivorship

The Wyoming Statutes set out the rules for affidavits of survivorship at 2-9-102.

A general affidavit of survivorship is used in three primary situations:
- life estates, where the transfer of ownership is delayed until the life tenant dies;
- tenancy by entirety, where a married couple owned the property together and the surviving spouse gains full title when the other spouse dies; and
- joint tenancy with right of survivorship, in which two or more people share ownership of the property, and agree that when one owner dies, any remaining owners will share the deceased owner's rights to the property.

Individuals with one of these interests in real estate may transfer (or consolidate) title by completing an affidavit of survivorship, signing it in front of a notary, and recording it, along with an official copy of the deceased owner's death certificate, in the office of the county clerk for the county where the property is situated. This document is important because it helps to maintain a clear chain of title (ownership history) for the property, which, in turn, simplifies future transactions (sales, mortgages, etc.) involving the land.

This information may not apply in all cases. Contact an attorney with specific questions or for complex situations.

June G. said: AMAZING! Easy to use, reasonable fee - and get MUCH MORE than just a deed form. I ordered a "deed" and received a whole "package," including a guide and the jurisdiction's costs schedule and cover page that would be needed to record the deed - even included a Certificate of Transfer that is not required for a deed but something I needed for a different transaction. The website was extremely easy to use and the cautions about not disclosing personal information were so clear and personal, they made me feel secure in knowing this site was not trying to rip me off. Very professional. Well done.

Marilyn S. said: I was fine. But I don't like surveys.

Reply from Staff: Thank you!


Gregory B. said: I believe you need more instruction on the use of the web site. I would type and nothing would appear on the form. When I tried to save a completed form I ended with a blank form with no detail.

Reply from Staff: Thank you!


Mark & Linda W. said: Quite simple and easy. Only one critique: It would be easier if the names of the PDF would reflect the name of the deed/form such as 'Controlling tax return' rather than '1579101185SF56863.pdf'. However I love downloading forms rather than mail.
