What is the Arkansas Beneficiary Deed

Beneficiary deeds in Arkansas are governed by A.S.A. 18-12-608. This statute offers owners of Arkansas real property to designate one or more beneficiaries who may gain the interest that remains in the owner's name at the time of his/her death.

Even though beneficiary deeds, just like other deeds of conveyance, must be lawfully recorded after they are completed and executed (signed in front of a notary), they differ from standard deeds in some important ways. If they are not recorded during the owner's life, they have no effect. Beneficiary deeds do not transfer any present interest in the real estate, so there is no requirement for consideration.

Perhaps one of their most unique features is the fact that the owner may execute and record new beneficiary deeds that change the beneficiary, the terms of the transfer, or even revoke the whole thing. The owner may even sell the property to someone else, leaving no interest to convey at death. Again, like the beneficiary deeds, to be effective, any changes must be recorded while the owner is alive. This flexibility allows land owners to retain absolute control over and use of the property.

When the owner dies, the beneficiary gains the title to the real estate described in the beneficiary deed. Any mortgages, liens, or obligations attached to the land at the time of the owner's death become the beneficiary's responsibility. In addition, if the owner received benefits from state or federal agencies, they might file reimbursement claims against the estate or the beneficiary.

Ultimately, beneficiary deeds can be a useful part of an overall estate plan. Still, executing one may impact the owner's eligibility for asset-based programs. Carefully consider the benefits and drawbacks to this type of conveyance to ensure that it supports the owner's overall intentions. Because each situation is unique, consult an attorney with specific questions.

This service is amazing! We have tried several other online recording services which all disappointed. Deeds.com got all three of our documents recorded same day as invoice payment. Thank you for the quick turn around! We will be using this service often.

I needed to add my partner to my warranty deed and deeds.com made it easy to understand what form I needed, attached a great explanation of the form and a sample of the form filled out. Couldn\'t be happier. In fact I\'m researching a Revocable Transfer on Death Deed now and they\'ve given me the confidence to rewrite my own will on my own.

Very good information. Easy access and easy to download. All the forms needed for TOD to be notarized and recorded with the county office. Much better than working with a Trust and the expense of lawyers, especially when several parties are involved and the owner of said property knows exactly to whom the property should go. Having forms and instructions available for the public to have their wishes recorded and confirmed makes handling final planning much easier and prevents family members from having the unnecessary task of going through court to solve property distribution issues. Thank you for this site and the forms you provide. I will recommend Deeds.com to those I know who are making final plans.

Excellent find (Deeds.com) from a google search, first hit. This was exactly what we were looking for. It also got me to upgrade Adobe to be able to fill in the forms.
Will be back for follow up as needed, but I think I got everything we needed in the first downloads. Appreciate a well done site like yours. Thanks John
