    A husband and wife owned a parcel of land as Joint Tenants. The husband died after they had a divorce but the separation papers stipulated the property belongs to the wife, this was the basis of the divorce.
    Does this seller need to be able to provide a death certificate to be filed when recording the deed?
    Any suggestions on how to move forward in this situation would be appreciated.

    Then the deed was not recorded in her name. Her X should have quit claimed it to her. Too late now. With out knowing any other facts like wills, heirs, value, etc. it seems like a judgement call on your part. I don’t think the divorce or stipulations matter to the county nor would they ever know about it. I would just have her send me a certified copy of the death certificate and file it with the deed.
