An owner of record is deceased; how do I notify the Assessor? Will this remove the decedent from title?

The Assessor’s Office must be notified upon the death of an owner within 150 days of the date of death, or if the estate is probated at the time the inventory and appraisal is filed. You may notify the Assessor of death by completing a Change in Ownership Statement – Death of Real Property Owner. This form is required even if the decedent held property in a trust.

This form does not remove or change the current title and is used for assessment purposes only.
