Sorry to hear of your loss; that is difficult.
One moment please as I review the remainder of your question.
Let me look into Oregon's laws on this because generally the procedure is quite simple in smaller estates. One moment please.
The time frame for transferring property is 4 months from the date the affiant filed the affidavit. I am still trying to locate a resource on the actual transfer.
that would be really helpful-i go to school in arizona so its difficult to go back and forth to take care of everything in oregon. im hoping i can transfer the property into my name from here-but im unsure of exactly how to transfer it-which is a bit aggravating.
I am having a very difficult time locating this. Everything tells you when, but not how. Typically, in most states, you would provide the court probate papers (i.e. letters testamentary), a copy of death certificate, and the affidavit for a small estate (as this states who the property goes to), then a title company would prepare a deed. But I'm trying to find the exact Oregon procedure.
for sure-ive been trying to find it as well just asking around and online research-but i dont really know where to start.
also, what happens if i miss the 4 month deadline? do i have to refile the affidavit?
Hello; I think I had too many research windows open as I got shut down. Are you still there?
Oh there you are! That was frustrating; I apologize. Let me close some of these windows.
I think I found something; just a moment pleaes.
any findings at all?
Nope; that was just more advisories on small estate affidavit. Everything I find says the PR or the affiant has the authority to make the transfer; but doesn't designate the how. Still looking.
The only thing that I am finding is that the county recorder's office has a notebook of deeds to use as samples - but that doesn't help you as you mentioned you were in AZ. Let me check one other thing.
I am unable to find anything on this. As I mentioned earlier I can find the relevant statutes, court process, etc, but nothing addresses transfer of real property for a decedent. Other than the fact that it needs to be done.
If you'd like I can spend more time on this or I can opt out and another expert may be able to better assist you.
if you think another expert can answer my questions more swiftly and thoroughly.
I will opt out so another expert may help you.
Hi, I am a moderator for this topic. It seems the Professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new Professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
no worries. i dont think this answer was worth 30 dollars, hense my dissatisfaction. please dont contact me furtherly.
