When I click on the paper clip it's asking for stuff like the url dimensions , alighnment. THe images are in my documents so I dont see how this applies. DO you have any suggestions. If not I guess we can proceed wit hout actual images. Seems like I should be able to attach a file.
Ok I emailed the docs to experts@justanswer .com.
Thanks very much.
Yes, that is all true. I have an Affidavit of Death of Joint Tenant form. I am stating that Cecil Taber from the death certificate is the same as the one on the deed (they call it Warranty deed) dated April 206, 1989. I goes on to say "executed by (Names of Grantors) to (Names of Grantees) recorded as instrument number _______ on (date) of the Official Records of (county and state) covering the following described property situated in said County State of New York,. then it has blank lines for a legal description and a statement that the total property owned by decedent did not exceed the sum of $_____.
So I want to be sure I enter Grantors, Granters, instrument number correcdtly. I presume I could copy the description from the current deed.
Prior to our joint ownership, it was in his first wife and his names, and she died in 1977. SO he was sole surviving tenant by the entirety.
Also not sure if there is a standard amount you have to use for the total property sum.
If you need further help, just reply to me via the “REPLY” button and I will be happy to continue.
I cannot enter into an attorney client relationship, this is a public forum, and all posts are available for public viewing. There is no duty of confidentiality that attaches to any posts. The information provided is not a substitute for a local attorney’s legal advice.
Well that is all I was given at the county records office. But I will try and see how it goes. When I went their, the people I talked to seemed clueless. Happy to make copies, but beyond that they seemed to be just file clerks. Anyhow this seems to be enough information for me. Thank you very much. At least I have a better picture of what's going on. So I would take this document to the county clerk and presumably that would start the process of them changing the deed?
