In Indiana, when a joint owner of a property dies, the survivor must file a Survivorship Affidavit to transfer title into his or her name.
In the Affidavit, you, as the surviving joint tenant, must state:
- the details of the ownership of the property,
- that the funeral expenses have been paid,
- that federal estate tax is not payable on the deceased's assets.
Download the Indiana Survivorship Affidavit and sign it in front of a Notary. You can then record it at the proper county office to convey title into your name.
