Understanding Survivorship Applications

A survivorship application is a legal process used to transfer ownership of property from one co-owner to another upon the death of the other co-owner(s). This process is typically utilized for jointly owned properties where the right of survivorship applies, allowing the surviving owner(s) to inherit the deceased owner’s share of the property automatically, outside of probate

Key Aspects of Survivorship Applications

Legal Documentation

 We assist clients in preparing and filing all necessary legal documentation required for the survivorship application. This includes drafting affidavits, certificates of survivorship, and other relevant documents to initiate and complete the transfer of ownership.

Title Examination

We conduct a thorough examination of the property’s title to verify the ownership rights and identify any existing encumbrances or liens that may affect the transfer. Our goal is to ensure clear and unencumbered title for the surviving owner(s).

Probate Considerations

In cases where probate may be required for the deceased owner’s estate, we provide guidance on navigating the probate process and coordinate with estate administrators or executors to facilitate the survivorship application efficiently.

Tax Implications

We advise clients on potential tax implications associated with the transfer of property ownership through survivorship applications, ensuring compliance with applicable tax laws and regulations.
