In Minnesota, transfer on death deeds are governed by Minn. Stat. 507.071.
While the statute provides a basic form, as well as overall content requirements, the state authorized the development of uniform conveyance documents for some specific situations. Transfer on death deeds are useful estate planning tools for those who wish to pass real estate down to designated beneficiaries, outside of the probate process.
Mistakes or omissions in such deeds can force the property back into the estate and subject it to probate distribution, despite the grantor owner's best intentions. For example, the rules for joint tenants who wish to convey property with a transfer on death deed are found in 507.071, subd. 6. A correctly-completed basic statutory form is effective in many cases, but because joint tenants are often married to one another, and to ensure that all the required information is included, there is a special deed for this circumstance.
This transfer on death deed form is for use ONLY by married grantor owners who hold title as joint tenants.
As with other transfer on death deeds, this form must be executed and RECORDED during the grantor owner's lifetime.

Gregory J. said: Ordered two separate forms for two separate states at two differnt times and couldn't be happier with my purchase. When compared to the cost of having two different attorneys prepare the forms I needed, the value of deeds.com couldn't be beat!

Cathleen H. said: The pdf form is good; however, the input boxes merge into the line above so the text is hard to read when complete. I added a return before entering my data and this solved the problem.
Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback Cathleen. We will have staff take a look at the document for issues with the text fields. Have a great day!
Cherene K. said: The process was easy and reasonable. My only problem was that, when I filled out my form on the computer, the writing I did overlapped with the pre-written words on the form, so that I had to end up doing it by hand. I've used DEEDS before and have not had that problem.
