Revoking a Transfer on Death Deed in South Dakota

The South Dakota Real Property Transfer on Death Act (SDCL 29A-6-401 et seq) went into effect on July 1, 2014. It offers owners of real estate in South Dakota an option for distributing their land after death by recording a transfer on death deed (TODD). They retain absolute control over and use of the land during their lives. The transferors may even modify or revoke the future transfer without penalty, and there is no need to update their wills or subject the property to probate.
This revocability is one of the most useful features about transfer on death deeds (TODDs) under the new law is (29A-6-405). It states that a TODD "is revocable even if the deed or another instrument contains a contrary provision." This is possible for two main reasons:
<ul><li>there is no obligation for consideration from or notice to any named beneficiaries (29A-6-409); and </li>
<li>until the owner's death, the beneficiaries have no actual, or present, interest in the property (29A-6-414).</li></ul>

Find the rules for revoking a previously recorded TODD at 29A-6-410. Subject to 29A-6-411, there are three primary ways to revoke or change the future transfer: Execute and record<ul>
<li>a new transfer on death deed that revokes the earlier TODD;</li>
<li>an instrument of revocation that expressly revokes the deed or part of the deed; or</li>
<li>an "standard" deed, such as a warranty or quitclaim deed that expressly revokes the transfer on death deed or part of the deed.</li></ul>
Note that, just as with the original transfer on death deed, any instrument of revocation must be recorded before the transferor's death in the public records in the office of the register of deeds in the county where the deed is recorded. See 29A-6-411 for information about joint owners.

Life is uncertain, and the flexibility of TODDs helps landowners respond to changes in circumstances with relative ease. Each case is unique, so contact an attorney with specific questions or for complex situations.

Really good product, included guide to filling out forms.
Totally pleased with that part.
Customer service however was terrible. Did not hear back after I sent two emails. The site signed me up but after I was accepted they would not allow me to download a form, with the notation my account was closed. Had to use another email. Had problems with that. Finally got off of site and went to a login site that allowed me to download the forms. If you can get past setting up your account, it is fantastic site. Nice price compared to alternatives. Also I recieved two validation codes. Have no idea why they were sent.

Your documents were very helpful. I went ahead and filled in all the info for the Release of Lien document. It was easy to do with your example. I had all the necessary info such as plot numbers, etc. for the property and everything fit nicely onto the document. It has been notorized and mailed. My grandparents' Victorian home has new owners who love it and has paid it off. Yeah!!!

The form was very easy to use and the sample tool you had was very helpful. the only problem i had was saving the document and then trying to find it later. I finally was able to figure out how to save it. but i still cannot find the saved document on my computer. Luckily i printed it before i closed it and did not need to make any changes.

I thought the instructions could have been a little better. I didn't know how to do this if the spouses are married but living in separate residences. Also I didn't understand the &quot;Prior Instrument Reference&quot;. That should be explained better. Very sketchy instructions.

Not sure whether the two forms I printed will be helpful or not. Will find out when I go to a place for completion and to be notorized.

Messaging system should reach customer email. It took me a couple of days to find out the processor had messaged me. A customer notification should be implemented for every message left in the account.
