To change the owner’s name on a property, you should consult an attorney. Most likely, the attorney will prepare a certificate, deed or other legal document or the Probate Court will issue a document to distribute or transfer the property. The legal document prepared by the attorney or court will need to be recorded in the Town Clerk’s Office along with the appropriate recording fee. Once the document is recorded by the Town Clerk’s Office, the Assessor’s Office will update their records and reflect that change on future tax bills.
State law does not allow the office to provide legal advice or to assist in preparing documents concerning real estate or land records.
