Minnesota Transfer on Death Deed by Married Joint Tenants

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.

Robert D. said: These forms made it so easy to update the property deed and the instructions and sample filled out form were most helpful. You might want to add some brief information on when or why to use the Acknowledgment in Individual Capacity notary form. In my case the notary was required to use it but also filled in the brief notarize section on the Affidavit as well. She said the one on the Affidavit had some value because it showed she had witnessed the my signature. But this was only after I suggested both be filled in as she initially thought to just strike through it and just use the Acknowledgment in Individual Capacity form.

Jennifer B. said: I didn't care for it because I was having to do other things in between filling it out and all of a sudden it would not allow me back in it to make changes. Luckily I had saved it and then had to do FILL/SIGN option which looks ugly but that was the only way I could add what I needed.
