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.

Tim H. said: Found the service useful and straightforward. The only recommendation would be to send an e-mail notification to the request or when their package is ready for download. Mine, apparently, was ready within and hour or so after placing the request but did not go back onto the site until a day later to find it was ready.
