Virginia Transfer on Death Revocation Information

As of July 1, 2013, Virginia joined the growing number of states allowing transfer on death deeds. These instruments 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.

One of the most useful characteristics of this estate planning tool is its flexibility. Life is unpredictable, and it's important to update wills and other documents dealing with what happens after death. For most deeds, once the owner/transferor signs and records the document, the transfer of title is completed and permanent. With transfer on death deeds, though, recording the executed form sets out the owner's intended plans for the property, but only after his/her death -- while alive, the owner maintains absolute control over and possession of the real estate. Because the conveyance is only for a potential future interest, and generally involves no consideration (money or something else of value given in exchange for the property), these deeds can be revoked for any reason, and at any time during the owner's life.

The Virginia statutes define the processes available for revoking a transfer on death deed at 64.2-630. The primary methods are executing a new transfer on death deed that explicitly revokes or changes the named beneficiary on one that was previously recorded; executing a revocation instrument; or executing an inter vivos deed, permanently transferring ownership of the real property to another owner. All of the methods require that the instrument changing the status of a transfer on death deed be executed and recorded DURING THE OWNER'S LIFE.

Each situation is unique, so carefully review all the options and their potential advantages and consequences before deciding on the appropriate method for revoking a transfer on death deed.
