We prepare deeds, affidavits, and trusts for real property.

Deed and Record prepares deeds, affidavits, and trusts for real property. We also e-record deeds and affidavits.

Deeds are used to change owners who are living. Affidavits of death are used to declare the death of an individual officially. An affidavit is a part of transferring real property from the decedent to the decedent’s heirs. An affidavit is limited to real property owned by a joint tenant, a trust, or a revocable transfer on a death deed.  

Trusts avoid probate. Probate is a court-supervised process that can be lengthy, expensive, and public. By avoiding probate, you save time and money. Also, you keep your affairs private.
