Jordan, NY asked in Real Estate Law for New York

Q: what deed form do I file in the state of NY?

My father passed away November of 2023 in the State of New York, Cayuga County. He left no will. He owned a small parcel of land. I am the only next of kin. I went to court and obtained the letters of administration and went to the clerks office. They told me that I had to file a deed form but would not give me any other information saying they couldn't. I am trying to find out what deed form I have to file and do you know where can I find this form as I am doing this on my own. Also, can the guarantor and guarantee be the same person since I am the administrator AND the only next of kin?

A: I would recommend working with a title company to file a deed. If you would like assistance, hire a local real estate attorney or give me a call and I can work with you to get it done.
