I am purchasing a property from a couple where the wife is deceased. The warranty deed filed in 2006 shows grantor as Jane doe and John Doe , wife and husband. Then in 2009 the deed was re-recorded as is but with an addendum “Acceptance of Joint Tenancy”.
The wording includes:
This acceptance is to be attach4ed to: Warranty deed dated January 19,2006 by and between Jane Doe Successor trustee and Jane doe and John Doe.
That each of the undersigned individually and jointly as grantees hereby declare that it is their intention to accept such conveyance as joint tenants with right of survivorship and not as a community property estate and not as tenants in common, and to acquire any interest in said real property under said deed as joint tenants with right of survivorship, and not as community property estate and not as tenants in common.
That by the execution and delivery to the Escrow Agent of this “Acceptance of Joint Tenancy” the undersigned intend to evidence their acceptance of said deed as joint tenants, and herebydirect and authorize the Escrow agent to attach this “Acceptance of Joint Tenancy” to such deed upon execution and delivery and to record this “Acceptance of Joint Tenancy” together with such deed.
Date January 19, 2006
So my question is with the wife deceased what do I list as grantor on the deed when I transfer to me, as only the husband will sign?
Jane Doe and John Doe, Wife and husband?
And if so on the signature line for Jane Doe do I write deceased and record a death certificate with the deed?
Thanks for the help
