One of our listers just asked me about how to remove a deceased husband
from the property.
I have been told two different things regarding the removal of a
deceased spouse from a deed.
1. death certificate has to be recorded
2. death certificate does not have to be recorded since under Vermont
law it is automatic.
Can someone please tell me how a widow can easily get her property
changed to her name only?
Also, can the tax bill (and listers' record) have just one name while
the deed remains unchanged?
Thanks, in advance, for your help.
