A certified copy of the decedent's death certificate. Evidence of ownership: In certain situations, if the decedent had evidence of ownership of the property described in the affidavit, it must be attached to the affidavit, if available. Otherwise, the holder of the property may be permitted to require that the successor of the decedent furnish an indemnification bond or undertaking as a condition to the transfer of the property. Copy of consent: If a probate of the decedent’s estate is pending and the decedent's personal representative consented to the transfer of the property, a copy of the consent and the court letters issued to the personal representative must be attached to the affidavit. If the holder of the property refuses to honor an affidavit (assuming that it is not defective), the affiant may file a statutory action against the holder to compel payment, delivery or transfer of the property. Execution of Affidavit: The affidavit must be executed by all of the decedent's successors who have an interest in the property sought to be collected, received or transferred. Attachments to Affidavit: The following attachments to the affidavit are required: Either of the following, as appropriate: "The affiant or declarant is the successor of the decedent (as defined in Section 13006 of the California Probate Code) to the decedent's interest in the described property." or "The affiant or declarant is authorized under Section 13051 of the California Probate Code to act on behalf of the successor of the decedent (as defined in Section 13006 of the California Probate Code) with respect to the decedent's interest in the described property." "No other person has a superior right to the interest of the decedent in the described property." "The affiant or declarant requests that the described property be paid, delivered, or transferred to the affiant or declarant." "The affiant or declarant affirms or declares under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of California that the foregoing is true and correct." In certain circumstances, a decedent's personal property may be transferred to the "successors" of the decedent without the need to open a probate with the probate court. The decedent's entire estate must qualify as a small estate and must meet all of the requirements of sections 13100-13115 of the California Probate Code. The decedent's successors may make their claims to the property and take title (assuming no conflicting claims) by presenting an affidavit which meets certain requirements to the holders of the property. Title to real property may not be transferred under this procedure.
