A survivorship application is an application by a surviving joint tenant of property to remove the name of a deceased person from the certificate of title. The application must be made to Landgate and must include the death certificate. A statutory declaration may also be required.
There is no need to lodge a survivorship application immediately upon the death of a joint tenant. The application can just as easily be done at the time of disposal of the property, whether by sale or upon the death of the last surviving joint owner.
