how to get lifetime leasee off of title , when leasee dies


What does a property owner do to get a release of lifetime lease, when the leasee dies?


To clear the title you simply have to record a certified copy of the death certificate at the county lands office. The death certificate will then become part of the chain of title and will release the life lease from the deed. You may want to check with the lands department or consult with a real estate attorney just to make sure that your state does not have any additional requirements.
