I own some property in Elko, Nevada although I currently live

This answer was rated:

I own some property in Elko, Nevada although I currently live in Idaho. My question is, in the event of my death, does Nevada law have a "joint tenency, right of survivorship" law, or something similar, to ensure my wife takes over full ownership of the property as simply as possible without issues or hassles? Can you tell me if I'm using the correct terminology or if it's called by another name in Nevada?

RayAnswers :

Thanks for your question and good morning.Nevada does have such a law.You would deed it from yourselves and tenants in common to joint tenancy with right of survivorship using a premade form.This is not difficult you can complete it yourself and file it in the real property records where the property is located.

Here is more information about filing fees, etc.

RayAnswers :

This is really a pretty simple thing to do.You would get the property description off of existing deed, complete it and sign it in front of a notary and mail it in for filing along with filing fees.They record it and mail you back the original for your records.
