Hi, I will be happy to assist you, and it is my goal to make you a very satisfied customer! This may take a few minutes, so thanks for your patience.
If the tax office shows the ex wife as the current life estate owner, why are you asking about recording something with the ROD -- I assume that's been done if the assessor is reflecting a change of ownership (as they generally obtain their information from the ROD's office)?
I am unable to locate it in the ROD but the tax office gives a reference to the estate file number.
Well, as far as recording something -- you would record a copy of the order from the probate court that sets out the life estates, etc. You would record a certified copy - not just a regular copy. However, I would presume that it's already been recorded or the tax office wouldn't have that information. Please let me know if I can provide additional information. Thanks.
Thank you for your assistance....
