Retain ownership, avoid probate
A beneficiary deed lets the property owner (grantor) avoid probate by naming a person or entity (grantee) that will receive the title when the owner passes on.
Beneficiary deeds are so popular because they allow elder family members to provide for a planned transfer of homes and other real estate without probate, while retaining ownership during their lifetimes.
It’s important to understand that the grantor’s property interest to be conveyed through the beneficiary deed won’t be transferred until the owner’s passing.
At that time, the interest is transferred automatically to the named grantee (or grantees).
Living trust or beneficiary deed?
Living trusts and beneficiary deeds both help you avoid probate, yet they go about it through different pathways.
With a beneficiary deed, the property owner retains full ownership control over the property.
And, the owner may sell or encumber the property without restriction, or change or revoke the deed at a later time.
Whatever your choices for property transfers and estate planning, Tucson Legal Documents, LLC can help by preparing the right documents.
