Plainfield, IN asked in Estate Planning and Probate for Indiana

Q: Do I qualify for survivorship?

My name is posted online as the second owner and in the recorders office. My quickclaim was recorded and I have a reciept. What is needed to change myself to the primary owner? My family says a probate is needed, but online I read survivorship. Also my mother was ill and used alias names as she forgot or anxious when dealing with legal work. And my name has an error in the recorders office. What are my options. I just want to do this once and the right way. Thank you.
