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 In addition, outdated information might interfere with property tax billing, possibly leading to fees and/or penalties.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.

Good but knocked off a star because the download file names are mostly numbers instead of recognizable names of the file contents (e.g., Promissory_Note_blank.pdf). Renaming would be a great help!

I accidentally ordered the wrong deed package. Was looking for a quit claim deed and got a trustee deed. I immediately emailed the company, nothing back from them. I would like to exchange my purchase.

The transfer deed documents are laid out the way county offices need, but I don't like the requirements so I'm going to leave a bad review.

Well, thanks we guess.

My client needed to provide a statutory Oklahoma Memorandum of Trust. I was able to provide her with the form quickly and inexpensively.
