Transferring a Washington Real Estate Title to a Transfer on Death Beneficiary

The Revised Statutes of Washington set out the rules for transfer on death deeds at Chapter 64.80. Property transferred in this way is not passed in a will; instead, the named beneficiary's share is conveyed as a function of law, but not until after the property owner dies.

To perfect the title, RCW 82.45.197(7) discusses recording a certified copy of the owner's death certificate. Otherwise, the deceased owner's name would remain on the title. This inaccuracy can create confusion during a title search and slow down the transfer process. In addition, outdated information might interfere with property tax billing, possibly leading to fees and/or penalties.

By executing and recording an affidavit of facts as to death to accompany the death certificate the beneficiary can clarify the intended outcome of the transfer. This action keeps property records up-to-date, verifies interests and rights to the title, and ensures smoother transfers in the future.

Each circumstance is unique, so please contact an attorney with questions or for complex situations.

I recieved my document in a reasonable amount of time. I thought being a member i would be able to look up more than 1 document but it keeps asking me for more money. I requested help, asking if I need to pay for each document but have not yet been answered. I appreciate the fact I got 1 document I needed quickly.

Awesome site!! You guys really make it simple to understand and access any Deeds that I need. I know you keep very up to date forms, as my county is hard core when it comes to the smallest of details, even compared to every other county across the state. Yet you made it simple and quick, and I never had to redo anything. Even the clerk was impressed that I had it filled out correctly the first time, as that usually never happened. Even the size of type/font and the margins were perfect. That saved a lot of time, money and most of all, frustration. I've recommended you to relatives, friends and co-workers. Thanks to the staff at deeds dot com !! I truly appreciate you. j
