Joint Deceased Tenancy Affidavit

We here at Robertson Legal Group, LLC have frequently espoused the virtues of quit claim deeds and what they are useful for, whether it be freeing yourself from legal liability or editing someone’s name on a title, quit claim deeds are a great way to clear up title. We frequently use quit claim deeds to help transfer parcels of land for clients living in the Joliet, Naperville, Plainfield, Bolingbrook, and Romeoville areas. One issue that arises is what does one do when their spouse, who was on the title, passes away. At first glance, one would think that they are automatically taken off of the deed or that people would assume that since the individual is dead, they will not dispute any transfers or changes in title. While that is usually true from a practical standpoint it isn’t true from a legal one. If someone wants to remove a deceased spouse from a title that is held in joint tenancy, they need to affirmatively assert that the spouse is dead and take the name off of the deed through the appropriate legal procedures. The solution is a quit claim deed, but the surviving spouse would also need to sign a joint deceased tenancy affidavit.
