After the Death of an Owner, How do You Get Title to Property Under a TODD?
After the death of the Owner, the following documents must be filed with the county recording office in which the Transfer on Death Deed was originally recorded:
An Affidavit of Identity and Survivorship, which identifies that the Grantee Beneficiary or Beneficiaries survived the deaths of all Owners by at least 120 hours.
Certified Copies of Death Certificates for each Owner.
A Medical Assistance Clearance Certificate issued by the county agency in which the real property is located for each Owner.
