Affidavit of Death
An affidavit of death is used to note on your property title the death of one of the owners and the resulting ownership. Typically, a surviving spouse will record an affidavit of death so that there is no question that he/she controls the property. This is useful when selling, refinancing, or adding individuals to the title.
This is not a substitute for probate.
