    You report his death to whomever issued you the warranty and request his name be removed. All you should need is a death certificate and make sure he didn't pass his share on to any one else. If he had a will then the terms of the will take precedent.

    Did he?

    Contact the company with the warranty deed. You will most likely have to provide a death certificate. I am sorry for your loss.

    Sorry folks, deeds are changed at town/city/state deed offices. And the wording of the deed determines who gets ownership, not the will.
    You need a notarized death certificate. Call and ask if they need an original or copy. Some allow for a copy if you file within 6 months of the person's death.
