When people hold property as joint tenants, it is not necessary to file probate to transfer title in that property if one of the parties dies. If someone owns property as a joint tenant with right of survivorship with another party, the surviving owner is automatically entitled to the property when the co-owner dies. An interested party can transfer the Decedent’s ownership to the surviving co-owner by merely recording an affidavit confirming the death of the co-owner.
