Thanks for the post, and the link to the Washoe County link.
Both seem to be specific for Joint Tenancy. The deed in question doesn’t specify, and it is my understanding that Tenancy in Common is assumed where no other information is available. Since Tenancy in Common doesn’t assume heirship the way Joint Tenancy does, I’m not sure the County can help that way.
I have found the Nevada Statute that deals with small estates (NRS 146.070 Estates not exceeding $50,000), and have some good direction to follow there. It looks like the property can be transferred with an affidavit.
