My question involves real estate located in the State of: Arizona
Back in the 60's my parents and aunt and uncle purchased an undeveloped parcel. They were making shared payments until it was paid off to acquire the Deed into their names. The minimal amount paid for the property tax was always paid annually by my father.
Moving forward to 1991 aunt and uncle were having financial difficulty. Parents decided to help them monetarily with the agreement they would both sign a Quit Claim Deed of their interest to them which was recorded. The Deed to the property is held in parents names with JT/RS.
Father passed away in 1994. Death Certificate never recorded for the purpose of removing fathers name from the Deed.
In 1999 mother agreed and signed a Quit Claim for a 1/3 to myself and wife with JT/RS and a 1/3 each to two brothers and wives also with JT/RS. Quit Claim was notarized but never recorded (Assessor's Office considers the Quit Claim Deed as a Drawer Deed) a Deed that sat in a drawer and never recorded.
Moving forward again. In 2015 since both brothers and wives do not care about owing the property they've all signed Quit Claim Deeds of their 1/3 interest to myself and wife with JT/RS. They have also signed an Acceptance of Joint Tenant with Right of Survivorship created from the Quit Claim. Mother passed away in 2000. Still nothing recorded or Death Certificates.
I am working on it.
So, once the Quit Claims and Death Certificates are recorded in succession the Deed will go into my name and wives.
So, hopefully this document will finish and finalize the Deed properly.
I now have drafted a Joint Tenancy Deed with Rights of Survivorship (Husband and Wife to Husband and Wife) We are both the Grantee's and Grantor's conveying to ourselves. So, hopefully, is a correct document to follow the other documents to complete the Deed transfer correctly.
Will look forward to responses to make sure I am using the last document to finalize the transfer incorrectly.
