Avoid probate and pass on your Minnesota real estate with a simple transfer-on-death deed
If you own real estate in Minnesota and want to make sure that it passes to your heirs without the hassle of probate court, simply create a transfer-on-death (TOD) deed. This deed transfers ownership of your property just like a regular deed you might use to transfer real estate, but with a crucial difference: it doesn't take effect until after your death.
Creating a TOD deed is a snap! Simply complete the following steps:
fill in information about you and the TOD beneficiary
write a description of the property
check over the completed deed
sign the deed and have it notarized
record the deed at the recorder's office in the county where the property is located
