Transfer on death deeds (TODDs) in Oklahoma are governed by the Nontestamentary Transfer of Property Act (Title 58 O.S. 1251-1258), enacted in 2008. This law allows owners of interests in real property located in Oklahoma to designate one or more beneficiaries to receive those interests after the owner dies, but without the need for probate.

Owners who execute and record a TODD retain absolute control over and use of the property interest while living. In addition, they may modify, revoke, or otherwise convey the land any way they wish, without penalty or obligation to the beneficiaries. This is possible because unlike a traditional conveyance, there is no delivery requirement to notify the beneficiaries about what they might receive -- the deed only conveys a potential future interest in whatever remains after the owner's death ( 58-1252(B), 1257).

The statutes define an interest in real property to include "any estate or interest in, over or under land, including surface, minerals, structures and fixtures" ( 58-1252)(A)), meaning that the transfer is not limited to land, but can also include mineral rights and royalties.

Even though a TODD is not impacted by the owner's will, to reduce the likelihood of fraud and coercion, it demands the same standards of competence and capacity. Additionally, the document must be signed and acknowledged, in the presence of a notary, by the owner and two disinterested witnesses (individuals with no potential claims on the property rights) prior to recording ( 58-1253, 1258).

After the owner dies, each surviving beneficiary must execute and record an affidavit affirming his/her acceptance of the transfer ( 58-1252(C), (D)). The beneficiary takes the interest subject to all recorded obligations related to it.

NOTE: The transfer on death deed and any associated changes or revocations must be recorded, DURING THE OWNER'S LIFE, in the county where the property is located.

Overall, a transfer on death deed offers a convenient, flexible estate planning tool for owners of interests in Oklahoma real property. Each circumstance is unique, so consider all options carefully. For additional information or complex situations, contact a local attorney.

Deeds.com recorded documents for me without any issue. It's a good service and provides a lot of assistance on its web site. However, I asked for a printed receipt (i.e. an pdf copy of one), but after a staff provided me with an obvious answer, they simply ignored my follow up requests. I also asked a simple formatting question that they should have been able to answer; instead, they passed the buck and referred me to the recorder, which currently is a very time-consuming venture. They also have no telephone number for any issue. Generally, the service saves me the time and effort of physically recording a document, but when you think about $19.00 per recording seems like a steep price for the services rendered.

I purchased he Alabama Correction Warranty Deed Form to correct a mistake in the legal description. However, this form says it must be signed by all who previously signed the deed. One of these people is now deceased. Can I use this form? How would it be different? I would give you 5 stars but wish this issue had been addressed. Thanks.

Reply from Staff

Thank you for your feedback. From the product description: All parties who signed the prior deed must sign the correction deed in the presence of a notary.
