What is the Ohio Transfer on Death Designation Affidavit?

Authorized under section 5302.22 of the Ohio Revised Code, the Transfer on Death Designation Affidavit (TDDA) allows owners of real estate situated in Ohio to plan the conveyance of their property to designated beneficiaries after their death. The conveyance occurs separately from a will and without the need for probate. These instruments are known in other states as transfer on death deeds, beneficiary deeds, or Lady Bird deeds, and all fall under the heading of Non-probate Transfers on Death.

TDDAs are useful estate planning tools, because unlike "regular" deeds (warranty, grant, quitclaim, etc.), which permanently transfer the owner's interest in the property, the grantor retains full ownership and control of the property while alive, and may change the beneficiaries, modify the terms, or even sell the property with no restriction or penalty. This flexibility is possible because the grantor accepts no consideration from any of the beneficiaries.

In addition to meeting all state and local standards for recorded documents, TDDAs must include a statement by "the individual executing the affidavit that the individual is the person appearing on the record of the real property as the owner of the real property or interest in the real property at the time of the recording of the affidavit and the marital status of that owner." Married owners must include a statement by "the owner's spouse stating that the spouse's dower rights are subordinate to the vesting of title to the real property or interest in the real property in the transfer on death beneficiary or beneficiaries designated in the affidavit" (RC 5302.22(D)(3)). It must also designate "one or more persons, identified by name, as transfer on death beneficiary or beneficiaries" ( 5302.22(D)(4)).

File the completed and notarized affidavit for recording in the county where the property is located. NOTE THAT THE AFFIDAVIT IS ONLY VALID WHEN SUBMITTED FOR RECORDING WHILE THE GRANTOR IS STILL ALIVE.

The transfer of property rights is completed when the owner dies and the beneficiary completes and records an affidavit of confirmation under R.C. 5302.222.

Using this instrument might affect tax obligations or eligibility for certain income or asset-dependent programs. Please contact an attorney with questions about this or any other issues related to estate planning or transferring real property in Ohio.

Review: My questions were answered promptly. I was not able to locate the deed I was searching for because my county has not uploaded the documents to be accessed through this system. I am sure I could have found what I was looking for had the information been available through the system. Thank you for your assistance.

Review: Would have paid double for these forms. Thankfully there are professionals making these things, I would have surely messed it up if I tried to do it myself based on my incorrect preconceived ideas.

Review: I would have liked more room in the text fields for describing the potential claim. had to use Exhibit A. Could not delete Exhibit B. Alo would like to have a custom footer - not deeds.com. Unprofessional.

Review: Using Deeds.com was unbelievably quick and easy to file a deed restriction with our local county office. From uploading the initial file to deeds.com, to having a fully recorded document was right on one hour - and all from the comfort of my home. I found your service was easy to use and your staff were very quick in responding to my filing. I will definitely use and recommend deeds.com in the future.
