Credit Cards Accepted

Transfer On Death Designation Affidavit

S.B. 124, which became effective immediately with the governor's signature on December 28, 2009, requires that a designation of a beneficiary of a transfer on death of real property must be created by affidavit rather than by deed. This means that deeds may no longer be used. However, S.B. 124 does not affect existing transfer on death deeds recorded prior to its effective date.
