It's important to know that a Transfer on Death Deed trumps anything else you have in place--like a trust, will, or any other legal document. This form can be an excellent tool to ensure that your property goes to the right person (or people). But you have to keep it updated. Make sure you keep it with the rest of your estate plan and update it accordingly. Think it's right for you? A Transfer on Death Deed can help you etch your wishes in stone.

Important Note: Transfer on Death Deeds are currently only allowed in the following states: Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, And Wisconsin.

In addition, a Transfer on Death Deed overrides any existing claim (s) to the property which may be in a will or trust. For example, a TOD overrides any statement in your will leaving the property to other beneficiaries.
