Q: If my spouse and I own property in joint tenancy and my spouse dies, how do I obtain sole title to the property?

A: Usually, you provide the death certificate to the County Assessor’s Office to change the assessment records. However, if the property is not held in joint tenancy, processing the estate in Probate Court may be required. You should obtain legal advice on all real estate transactions relating to your particular situation. The staff of the County Clerk’s Office cannot advise you on legal questions.  The Probate Court phone number is: 505-468-1233 or 505-468-1234.
