When searching through county appraisal district records, I am seeing heirs listed as owners. In these instances, no deed was issued. The appraisal district’s online “deed history” lists the conveying instrument as either “will” or “affidavit of heirship”.
Do these online records confirm that title has been transferred, or could this be merely a convenience for the tax assessor? Does the executor/administrator of the estate still need to convey title to the heirs with a deed?
