Wyoming Transfer on Death Affidavit

Wyoming's Nontestamentary Transfer of Real Property on Death Act went into effect on July 1, 2013. Find it at Sections 2-18-101-106 of the Wyoming Statutes.

By using transfer on death deeds (TODDs), people who own real estate in Wyoming have access to a flexible tool that allows them to direct what happens to their land after they die, independent from a will, and without the need for probate. As defined at W.S. 2-18-103, a TODD conveys the owner's interest in real property, subject to any debts or obligations in place during the owner's lifetime, to a designated grantee beneficiary. Until the owner dies, though, the beneficiary has absolutely no interest in or rights to the property.

To gain title to the property after the owner's death, beneficiaries must follow the procedure set out at W.S. 2-18-103(n). This involves completing and executing an affidavit of survivorship form, obtaining a certificate of clearance from the Wyoming department of health, and getting an official copy of the deceased owner's death certificate. Record the affidavit and accompanying documentation in the office of the county clerk of the county in which the real property is situated.

The process described above might not be appropriate in every situation. Contact an attorney with specific questions or for complex circumstances. Wyoming Transfer on Death Affidavit Forms Have Been Updated as Recently as Thursday March 21, 2019

Reply from Staff: Thanks Linda!

James J. said: The form itself was very good and easy to use. The only problem I had was the Sample they provided. Using a different name in every spot doesnt help determine what goes where. Using "Theodore Rockafeller" as Lien Claimant in one spot and Jebediah Finklestein in another then Harvey Johnson in the last spot is confusing if you really need a helpful sample.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback James. We will have staff review the completed example to see if we can make it more helpful. Have a great day!
