MOHAVE COUNTY PROOF OF AUTHORITY INFORMATION: This form provides a method for obtaining possession of personal property or transferring Arizona real property of a non-Arizona resident decedent, without commencing an ancillary probate or appointment proceeding. A.R.S. § 14-4204 requires that certified copies of the appointment of the foreign personal representative, letters of appointment and any official bond required by Chapter 3 of the Probate Code, be filed with the Clerk of Superior Court. The Proof of Authority shall also be filed with the aforementioned documents. It should be noted that if the will waives the bond, or at least the bond with respect to Arizona assets, no bond would be required. However, if bond is required, the amount of the bond must equal the value of all property of the decedent in Arizona OR the amount of bond posted in the state of domicile of the decedent. Once the foreign personal representative has complied with A.R.S. § 14-4204, he/she may exercise, as to assets in Arizona, all powers of a local personal representative without further appointment and may maintain actions and proceedings in this state, subject to any conditions generally imposed upon non-resident parties. A.R.S. § 14-4205 The power described above may be exercised only if no administration or application therefore is pending in this state. An application or petition for local administration in Arizona terminates the power of the foreign personal representative to act under A.R.S. § 14-4205, except as otherwise provided in A.R.S. § 14-4206, which also sets forth additional exceptions which apply to these procedures. You must pay a filing fee and a certification fee upon filing the Proof of Authority. Please refer to our fee schedule at www.mohavecourts.az.gov. Please mail the original and one copy of each of the following documents along with two separate checks (you may call the Recorder to find out what their filing fee is at 928-753-0701) to: Clerk of Superior Court, PO Box 7000, Kingman, AZ 86402: · · · · · Proof of Authority Certified copy of Letter of Appointment Certified copy of Bond (if one was posted) Check for the Filing Fee made payable to: Clerk of Superior Court Check for the Recording Fee made payable to: Mohave County Recorder IMPORTANT INFORMATION, READ CAREFULLY After the documents are received and filed in with the Clerk of Superior Court, the certified copy and the Recorder's check will be sent to the Recorder for recording. After this process is complete, it is your responsibility to prepare a Deed to transfer the property title. If you are unsure how to proceed, you may want to seek legal advice. The property title will not be transferred until there is a Deed recorded to transfer the property title.
