What is the Virginia Transfer on Death Deed?

Virginia's statutory transfer on death deed became effective on July 1, 2013. These deeds are governed by the Uniform Real Property Transfer on Death Act (URPTODA), which is incorporated into the Virginia statutes at 64.2-621 et seq.

A transfer on death deed is an instrument that allows owners of Virginia real estate to convey land to chosen beneficiaries without the need for a will or probate distribution ( 64.2-624). To be valid, the completed and notarized form must, among other things, meet the same standards as a regular inter vivos deed (one that transfers title while the owner is still living); state that the transfer will only occur at the owner/transferor's death; and be recorded <i>while the transferor is alive</i> in the land records at clerk's office of the county where the property is located ( 64.2-628).

The deeds are revocable, which means that while alive, the owner retains 100% control over the property, may use or sell it as desired, and may also redirect, modify, or even cancel the future transfer at will. As a result, there is no requirement for notice, delivery, acceptance, or consideration, all necessary for standard deeds ( 64.2-629). This is possible because the named beneficiaries only have a potential future interest in the real estate. The process and requirements for revocation are specified in 64.2-630.

During the owner/transferor's life, the recorded transfer on death deed does not change the owner's interest or rights to sell or mortgage the property; grant the beneficiary any interest in the land; change a creditor's interest in the real estate; affect the owner's or beneficiary's eligibility for public assistance; create a legal or equitable interest in favor of the beneficiary; or open the property up to claims from the beneficiary's creditors ( 64.2-631).

When the transferor dies, the title to the real property vests in the beneficiary according to the rules stated in 64.2-632. In some cases, however, the beneficiary may not wish to accept the property. If that happens, he/she may "disclaim all or part of the beneficiary's interest as provided by Chapter 26 ( 64.2-2600 et seq.)" ( 64.2-633).

Overall, Virginia's transfer on death deed adds an efficient, flexible tool for those considering options for estate planning. As with other important financial decisions, take the time to carefully review the different options. Each case is unique, so when in doubt, contact an attorney or other appropriate professional for advice.

Review: My experience could not have been better. Easy to communicate with, even though I'm largely ignorant of technical problem-solving. I may be addle-minded with 83 years on earth, but I think they actually cared about solving my problem and were sorry it was beyond their territory. Truly extra nice.

Name: Philippe B.

Review: I purchased a Quit Claim Deed package a couple weeks ago. The included guide unfortunately didn't answer all the questions about my specific case of how to fill it out, so I sent them a couple questions on Sept 8. It's now the 23rd, and still no reply. The form is a useless waste of money if I don't know how to fill it out in a legally-accurate way.

Reply from Staff on September 23rd, 2020

We certainly do not want you to waste your money Philippe, to that end your order and payment has been canceled. We do hope that you seek the advice of a legal professional familiar with your specific situation. It should go without saying but just to be clear, our do it yourself forms do not include legal representation for $19. Have a wonderful day.

Review: Absolutely recommend Deeds.com! The process to recording your document is explained step by step. If you have any questions, you just send a message and almost instantly a staff member will reply. Super quick processing. I uploaded my document late Friday afternoon, it was reviewed by Deeds.com staff and sent to the county for recording on Monday. By Tuesday, my document was successfully recorded by the County Recorder's Office and a copy of my recorded document was available for me, as well!
