Inyo County Death Records

Contracts are something that people enter into everyday even if they do not know it. The law says that contracts may be expressed or implied, so there is actually no need to draw up a piece of paper and write upon it terms that people have to agree with before there is a contract, for one could say that when a person buys something from a store, there is actually a contract. For a contract to be one that is enforceable, however, the parties must have the legal capacity to enter into a contract, and legal capacity is something that is lost through death. When one takes that into consideration, it is easy to see why death records like Inyo County Death Records are very important.

There is a need to prove death because there is a need to know if the contract is still enforceable, and note that death is something that the probate court, the proper forum to ventilate claims by the surviving party to the contract against the other party, could not take judicial notice of the death of one of the parties. As such, the death must be proved and as the records of the government, copies of Inyo County Death Certificates are considered to be the best records that could be used to prove the death, because they enjoy the presumption of regularity of business, a presumption that states that the existence of the record itself is prima facie evidence of its validity and authenticity.
