Avoid probate and pass on your Colorado real estate with a simple transfer-on-death deed

If you own real estate in Colorado and want to make sure it passes to your heirs without the hassle of probate court, you can use a transfer-on-death (TOD) deed. This document 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.

It's easy to make a TOD deed.  You'll simply complete the following steps:

  • fill in information about you and the TOD beneficiary
  • provide a description of the property
  • check over the completed deed
  • sign the deed in front of a notary public, and
  • record the deed at the recorder's office in the county where the property is located.

 

Take care of your beneficiaries and help them to avoid probate with this plain English eForm from Nolo.
