Hello Clerks,

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.
