    Please briefly explain why you feel this answer should be reported .


    Any property in the estate that has legal registration (real estate, stocks, bonds, vehicles, etc.) must be legally transferred to the new owner (which could be a trust or the estate administrator).  Most entities require a certified copy of a death certificate so the number you need depends on how many of these kinds of assets you have to transfer.  Oftentimes you will need a death certificate just to sell the property.
