CT Gen Stat § 45a-462 (2015) What's This?

If the title to any property to which sections 45a-458 to 45a-466, inclusive, apply was held by the decedent at the time of death, title to such property of the surviving spouse may be perfected by an order of the Probate Court or by execution of an instrument by the personal representative or the heirs or devisees of the decedent with the approval of the Probate Court. Neither the personal representative nor the probate court in which the estate of the decedent is being administered has a duty to discover or attempt to discover whether property held by the decedent is property to which sections 45a-458 to 45a-466, inclusive, apply, unless a written demand is made by the surviving spouse or the spouse’s successor in interest.
