Affidavit of Survivorship in Tenancy by Entirety
An affidavit of survivorship is a legal term for an official statement that the person who has died is the person whom the joint tenant knew and shared property with. It is used to pass the title to the surviving party. This ownership style is known as joint tenants with right of survivorship. When one party dies, usually only a certified copy of the death certificate and an affidavit of survivorship need to be recorded, then the name of the deceased is cleared from the title to that property.
