Wisconsin Transfer on Death Deed Form

Select the county where the PROPERTY is located.
Under Wisconsin Statutes § 705.15, owners of real property in Wisconsin may designate one or more people to gain ownership of their property outside of the probate process. The transfer on death deed contains the designation and must be recorded for validity.

By executing and recording a transfer on death beneficiary designation, the owner retains absolute control over the real estate, and may sell, mortgage, or use the property in any legal manner, and change or revoke the beneficiary designation without penalty or obligation to inform the beneficiary.

Because the transfer does not occur until after the owner’s death, there is no transfer tax due when recording the deed under §§77.21(1) and 77.25(10m). While the change in ownership happens as a function of law when the owner dies, when the beneficiary claims the land, he or she must record form TOD-110 to make the transfer official and enter the updated information into the public records.

Wisconsin’s transfer on death deeds are useful estate planning tools. Even so, carefully consider the potential impact of a non-probate transfer of property on taxes, as well as eligibility for local, state, and federal benefits.

Wisconsin Transfer on Death Deed forms must meet local and state statutory requirements for content and format. The most important county formatting requirements in Wisconsin are the margin requirements. Failing to meet the recorder's document margin requirements can lead to the document being assessed with a non-compliant fee or being outright rejected for recording.
