The Process – Affidavit Regarding Real Property of Small Value ($50,000 or Less)

There are several steps to complete this process, but we make it easy for you. Bring us a copy of the real property deed and the death certificate. We will prepare the affidavit and send it to the probate referee for their appraisal. Once the appraisal process has been completed, we will be ready to notarize your signature(s) on the affidavit so the necessary documents can be filed at the court. A small filing fee, currently $30 is paid at the time of filing. The filed certified copy can be obtained usually within a few weeks. The County Recorder can usually record documents the same day they are received, if not the next day.
