Making an Affidavit of Survivorship

  • What is an Affidavit of Survivorship?

    If you owned joint property with someone who has since passed away an Affidavit of Survivorship helps you invoke your legal rights and take full ownership of the property. Sometimes a court will want more than a death certificate; an Affidavit of Survivorship might help you make a tough situation a little easier.


    Use the Affidavit of Survivorship document if:

    • You're owned joint property with someone who's passed away.
    • You currently own joint property, and want to be prepared with the right documents

    Sometimes we want to jointly and equally own real property with family members or a business partner. Joint ownership can help preserve each party's equal stake in the property and allows that stake to transfer to the other owners if one were to pass away. In such a situation an Affidavit of Survivorship can be a helpful document to both restate the transfer of property interest and the type of ownership. There's no reason to let paperwork make things more difficult. Getting an Affidavit of Survivorship can be an easy and expeditious solution.
