What is the Illinois Transfer on Death Instrument?

Comparable to Ladybird, beneficiary, and enhanced life estate deeds, these instruments permit homeowners to name a beneficiary to gain title to their residential real property following the owner's death, while retaining absolute possession of and control over the property while alive. Because the Illinois document DOES NOT transfer ownership when it's executed, the owner may revoke the transfer at will, and is allowed to reallocate, sell, or otherwise dispose of the real estate as desired with no penalties, restrictions or obligation.

Save time and money.

Get your Madison County Transfer on Death Instrument form done right the first time with Uniform Conveyancing Blanks. At, we understand that your time and money are valuable resources, and we don't want you to face a penalty fee or rejection imposed by a county recorder for submitting nonstandard documents. We constantly review and update our forms to meet rapidly changing state and county recording requirements for roughly 3,500 counties.


We guarantee that you will receive access to the forms that you order and that those forms will be compliant with the recording requirements for the jurisdiction the forms were purchased for and the statutory requirements for content of the document.

Good morning The information was helpful and Im glad it was available online. Unfortunately I only needed the application since I am merely changing to my married name and adding my husband to the deed so I paid for documents I did not need. It would be nice to have the option to only purchase the forms needed. The site was easy to navigate. Thanks!

I found the forms to be more than adequate very easy to use and very professional looking (not that how they look matters). I was able to download and complete them in minutes. The information regarding recording the deed was a big help also. Thanks.
